CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Police Department has confirmed that the death in a mass-overdose in Chico on Jan. 12 was fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine poisoning.
Aris Turner, 34, of Chico, died due to the mass overdose incident and 14 others were sent to the hospital.
Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien said that fentanyl mixed with cocaine was found at the residence on Santana Court.
He also said that all of the 14 individuals transported to the hospital have recovered and were released from the hospital.
"I will emphasize again that without the quick reaction from our police officers, firefighters and Butte EMS personnel in the administering of Naloxone, including of course the efforts of Enloe hospital, this event would have been far worse and likely would have resulted in multiple fatalities," O'Brien said.
