UPDATE: Redmond man, 4-year-old son hospitalized for heroin overdose

UPDATE AT 3:44 P.M.: The Redmond man and his 4-year-old son are in stable condition and have been sedated, police said.

ORIGINAL POST: A Redmond man and his 4-year-old son have been hospitalized for a suspected drug overdose, said Redmond Police Lt. Charlie Gorman.

Redmond police and fire personnel responded to the 14100 block of NE 72nd St. at 11:45 this morning after receiving a 911 call from the boy’s mother who had come home to find her 37-year-old husband and son unconscious, Gorman said.

Drug paraphernalia was found in the home indicating that both father and son had been injected with suspected heroin, said Gorman.

Their conditions were not immediately known.

As of 2 p.m., detectives were still waiting for a search warrant in order to re-enter the residence and begin their investigation, Gorman said. The overdose is being investigated as an assault on the boy, but Gorman said it was far too premature to even speculate whether the incident could be an attempted murder-suicide.

“We’re still fresh into this,” he said, noting police don’t know how much of the suspected heroin was injested by either father or son.

While police have been called to the house before to perform welfare checks and investigate an assault, Gorman didn’t know if those incidents involved the same family.
