Police responded to a call at the Minnesota Valley Action Council thrift store Saturday afternoon, according to reports. The boy was taken to the local hospital where he was pronounced dead from an accidental strangulation.

Police have interviewed store staff. Schisel said there are cameras in the store but not in the dressing room.

Police said they don't suspect foul play, but the investigation continues.

The official cause of death will be determined by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by family members to cover funeral expenses.

"God gained another Angel last night and the few short years he was here with us, he never failed to make our day", the family wrote. The page describes Pena as "a sweet boy, with a gorgeous smile, an a unique little personality, his best friend was his older sister Glory".
