HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police in Hartford say they’re investigating three apparent overdoses that left one man dead.
Officers responded to the reported overdoses at a residence around 6:40 p.m. Tuesday. First responders administered naloxone, an overdose reversal antidote, and revived two of the men.
Police say the naloxone didn’t work on the third man. He was taken to a hospital in cardiac arrest and later pronounced dead. The other two were hospitalized and police say they’re in stable condition.
Deputy Chief Brian Foley says the medical examiner’s office will determine if the man died from an overdose.
No one was immediately identified.
Foley says three bags of heroin found at the scene will be tested for the presence of both heroin and fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that’s 50 times more potent than heroin.
