(CNN)A Connecticut woman is facing murder charges in the death of her 4-year-old son after he was found dead in their apartment Sunday morning, according to police.

Tiffany Farrauto, 33, of New London, was arrested after police officers responded to a call for a woman striking a vehicle with a bat, New London Police Chief Peter Reichard said during a press conference Sunday.

Officers started CPR before the boy was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, Reichard said as he held back tears.

A couple of them have children the same age, and it hits home, it hits you right in the guts," the chief said choking up.

Police are not identifying the child because they have not yet gotten in touch with his father or paternal family, the chief said.

"It's been a tough day in the city, we've lost a small child to violence," New London Mayor Michael Passero said during the press conference.

The mayor thanked the first responders and said that there would be counseling services available to them following the incident.

Farrauto is undergoing DNA testing at a local hospital and will be charged with murder and risk of injury to a minor, Reichard said.
