What the Hell is This?
Chicago Police began getting reports Saturday morning about multiple overdoses in the vicinity of Garfield Park. Four people overdosed at 8:55 a.m. Saturday near Pulaski and Wilcox, and within the hour, another two overdosed about two blocks away at Washington and Pulaski, said Officer Laura Kubiak of Police News Affairs.
Witnesses reported two men in their 20s were distributing free bags of heroin Saturday morning at Wilcox and Pulaski, Kubiak said. The drug "samples" do not appear to be connected to the fentanyl-laced heroin that has caused a rash of deaths, Kubiak said.
Hey News Affairs? Here's a couple little phrases you can use next time:
- "The investigation continues."
- "We haven't ruled anything out."
- "No comment at this time."
- "We are awaiting toxicology reports."
