The 2-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson died Friday afternoon in Sioux Falls, S.D., from injuries sustained during an aggravated assault on Thursday, police said.

Police are not releasing the boy’s name out of respect for the family, but Peterson’s father, Nelson Peterson, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press the child is Peterson’s son. The child had been in critical condition in a South Dakota hospital.

Joseph Robert Patterson was arrested on aggravated assault charges on Thursday and made his first court appearance on Friday. He is being held on $750,000 bail, and in light of the boy’s death, the Lincoln County State Attorney’s office will review the case for additional charges, according to a statement from the Sioux Falls police department.
