California authorities believe the powerful opioid fentanyl is responsible for a mass overdose event that left one person dead and hospitalized over a dozen others.
One person died, and 14 people were taken to the hospital.
Mike O'Brien, a police captain in Chico, California, said: "Certainly there's potential for additional fatalities".

Pacific time on Saturday at a home in Chico, said Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien. "It was a large mass casualty incident for us", Chico Fire Department Chief Steve Standridge toldthe Mercury News. Responding officers performed CPR at the scene and provided six victims with doses of naloxone, medicine that can treat narcotic overdoses in emergency situations. Of the survivors, eight are still being treated in the hospital and four were in critical condition.
