According to Chief Steven Post, at approximately 11 p.m. last night, a call came into the Little Falls Police Department that a 17-year-old male, who is a resident of Little Falls, was found unresponsive by his family.

"After our officers arrived on the scene, he was found to have no pulse and was not breathing," said Post. "CPR was performed on him and then he was transported by EMS to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, where he later died."

Post added that he would not further comment due to the case being an active investigation. He confirmed that Naloxone was not used at the scene. Naloxone is a medication that can prevent overdose deaths by opioids such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.
