Police treated three people at the Mall of America for possible drug overdoses Friday night.

According to Bloomington police, officers responded to a 34-year-old male in the mall's south food court at 8:18 p.m. He was unconscious, but police and medics were able to resuscitate him.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old woman who was with him also started to lose consciousness.

They were possibly overdosing on a narcotic, authorities say. Both were taken to Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina.

Then at 8:37 p.m., another person was found in a vehicle stopped at the mall's southeast side. That person was also treated for a possible narcotic overdose.

Officials say all three people at MOA had been together prior to the emergencies.

On Saturday, there were six separate heroin overdoses in Anoka County in 12 hours. And officials there worried the heroin may have been tainted and come from the same source.

Bloomington police have not specified which drug they believe may have been involved. They also say they cannot confirm whether or not the MOA incidents were related to those in Anoka County, but it's under investigation.
