2 maintenance workers die after fentanyl exposure at downtown LA apartment complex

Two maintenance workers are dead after police believe they may have been exposed to fentanyl at a downtown Los Angeles apartment complex.

The LA County coroner’s office identified the two victims Friday as 31-year-old Luis Garcia and 52-year-old John Black. 

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a hazmat call in the 800 block of South Olive Street a little before 11 a.m. Thursday. When officers arrived at the apartment complex, they found two unconscious men.

Garcia and Black, who were maintenance workers at the building, were pronounced dead at the scene.

It is unknown how the two workers got exposed to fentanyl.

No arrests have been announced in connection to the alleged deadly fentanyl exposure.

This incident comes nearly two weeks after three men were found dead following a suspected fentanyl in downtown LA again. A Los Angeles police officer was treated after being possibly exposed.
