OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas district attorney has declined to charge Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill with a crime in a domestic incident that involved his fiance and their 3-year-old child.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said Wednesday "we believe a crime has occurred, however, the evidence in this case does not conclusively establish who committed this crime."

Police were called to the home of Hill and Crystal Espinal twice last month, and the investigators said their child had been injured. Howe said there will be "a continued involvement by state officials" but declined to discuss the health of the child.

He described the case as a difficult one because of the child's involvement.
