HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Police in Hartford added another overdose to their tally from Tuesday night.

Deputy Chief Brian Foley said the number of people who overdosed on suspected heroin is now up to four.

The fourth victim was found just after 2 a.m. Wednesday in the middle of Broad Street with a needle in his arm.

No other drug paraphernalia was found.

Police said they were able to revive him with the anti-overdosing drug Narcan.

The man was transported to Hartford Hospital in stable condition.

Tuesday night, police said they originally responded to three overdoses at 77 Green St.

One of those cases was deadly.

The people involved have not been identified.

While one man died, the two others were revived with the help of Narcan.

Police said the first three cases were reported by a neighbor.

They said their investigation also revealed painkillers and alcohol on the scene.

They called the three people who overdosed in the same room an "anomaly." They said it was the result of a "hot batch" of heroin, which has a high likelihood of an overdose.

Police said they will be testing bags of the drug found at the scene for Fentanyl and heroin.

They said they'll release more information about the fourth case later Wednesday morning.
