A search warrant says the powder is believed to be the opioid pain medication Fentanyl, due to the victim’s symptoms.

A rescue crew showed up and used Naloxone, but it didn’t help. This person was transported from the scene, before three officers went back inside the apartment.

Three officers were treated for possible exposure to the powerful opioid.
