LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two are dead and one is in critical condition as Lebanon police investigate an incident they believe to have involved drug overdoses.

Late last night, Lebanon police units responded to a call of deceased persons on the 500 block of Rollingwood Drive, Lebanon police announced.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found three victims, two of whom - a 20-year-old male and 32-year-old female - were deceased. The third victim, a 20-year-old female, was unconscious and transported to a hospital in the area, before later being transported to a Metro Nashville hospital. She is in critical condition, in a coma.

Police suspect drugs to be involved, but are waiting on the full toxicology report. Earlier today, a report from the CDC was released showing that overdoses in the U.S. have declined, but not in Tennessee.

This story will be updated as more details become available.
