Funeral services will be Monday for a Hixson two-year-old, who, according to his obituary, "died in a tragic accident at his home."

 

Authorities said they are looking into the circumstances of the death of Colton Zachary Shero.

 

A roofer who was working at a nearby house on Thursday said the child's mother came running out of the house crying for help.

He said he tried to give CPR to the child, but he was unresponsive.

 

He said the child had a deep blue bruise on his neck.

 

His parents are Wade and Erin Shero

 

The obituary said Colton "was much loved by those who survive him."

 

Those include his parents as well as sisters, Lauren Rumba and Mattie Rumba, brothers, Jon Johnson and Stan Shero, grandparents, Mike and Marsha Cowan, James Morgan and Judy Toon, and great-grandmother, Frances Cowan.

 

Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. on Monday at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church with Father Jim Vick officiating. Interment will follow in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.

 

The family will receive friends from 5–8 p.m. on Sunday at the Chattanooga Funeral Home, East Chapel, 404 South Moore Road.
