William Bell lived at the address where the crime occurred.

He surrendered to authorities Thursday at the Wake County Detention Center.

The incident was reported just before 2 p.m. Thursday, when Raleigh police officers were dispatched to a “code blue” call at a home in the 5200 block of Somerset Mill Lane.

Two days later, police released a short statement saying the death of the boy was a homicide.

“The death has been determined to be a homicide. Follow-up investigative work remains underway. Charges have not yet been filed,” police said in a press release.
