Father out of hospital, in jail after suspected overdose of young son

The conditions of a Redmond man and his 4-year-old son have improved since they were hospitalized following a suspected heroin overdose, according to the Redmond Police Department.

In a news release, the department said the father has been transferred to police custody and booked into the King County Jail on attempted first-degree murder and related charges.

Police and fire personnel responded to the man’s home in the 14100 block of Northeast 72nd Street just before noon Tuesday after receiving a 911 call from the boy’s mother, who had come home to find her 37-year-old husband and her son unconscious.  Drug paraphernalia found in the home led officers to suspect both the father and son had been injected with heroin, police said.
