Police in Northern California responded to a "mass casualty overdose" situation on Saturday that resulted in one death and a dozen people hospitalized.
Authorities said that the incident was caused by exposure to the deadly opioid fentanyl, which also affected two responding officers, according to NBC News.
Mike O'Brien, a police captain in Chico, Calif., said at a news conference that four of the victims were in critical condition.
"Certainly there's potential for additional fatalities," O'Brien said. "I want to emphasize that."

It’s just a matter of time before someone weaponizes it.
Luckily, that Democrat Congress man dissolved the terrorism committee so he could create a Trump conspiracy committee
Screw em, play stupid games, win stupid prizes. There’s no fentanyl in my house.
Alright. What are a few deaths anyway, either by overdosing, by drunk driving, or by murder?
It’s just the price of doing business, for both the Cheap Labor Express and the Vote-Buying Rats.
Looks like stealth chemical warfare.
Brought to us by wonderful China.
Now you, me, and even the black lab next door know this has nothing to do with firearms. Yet I guarantee you that somewhere there is a libtard (probably more than one) trying to figure out a way to connect this "mass casualty" event with firearms to support their disarmament agenda.
These illegal drugs do not mysteriously fly through the air and land in one’s mouth. They are placed there by the hand of very low life people with no self discipline in an illegal act. Until we punish the User again all this nonsense is silly. Here is a clue. DON”T TAKE ILLEGAL NARCOTICS. Get a life!
I guarantee you there will be several rabid Democrats at Yahoo who will blame this on ... President Trump ... and a few will claim he’s doing it at the direction of ... Putin.
You might think I’m joking. I’m not.
Chico is one of the biggest party schools in the country.

Yes, unlike many, the Chinese have long memories.
Where do they get it from? Why are they taking it? They obviously don’t have jobs. Where do they get the money to pay for the damned stuff?
I have absolutely no sympathy or understanding for substance abusers. Does that offend anyone?
LOL at black lab!
“Party like there’s no tomorrow”
I think they should add 10% of fentanyl to all illegal drugs coming in and that would stop this nonsense.
My concern is for the first responders. Just a grain of thecrap can kill a person.
This is how the Chinese are getting into our country and rotting us at the foundation.
