WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Warren officers were forced to use the anti-overdose drug naloxone on two overdose victims early Friday morning.

Police and emergency crews were called to a house in the 400 block of Martin St. S.W. on reports of an unresponsive male and female.

When police arrived, they found an unconscious female lying on the floor of an upstairs bedroom. A male, identified as James Stump, 44, of Warren, was found lying on his back inside a doorway, according to a police report.

Police immediately administered naloxone to both victims, but only the female responded to the treatment. The male was not breathing and officers began CPR.

When paramedics arrived, emergency life saving efforts were continued by the crew, and the female was then able to walk outside to an ambulance, which transported her to Trumbull Memorial Hospital.

The male victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
