One student died and another was hospitalized after police say they overdosed on the campus of Bernstein High School in Hollywood late Tuesday.

Officers responded to the school, located in the 1300 block of N. Wilton Place, around 9 p.m. after a parent found his missing stepdaughter there and she appeared to have overdosed but was conscious, Los Angeles Police said in a news release.

The student told her stepfather that her friend was in the restroom.

“The parent found a school employee, entered the women’s restroom, and found an apparent overdose victim who was unresponsive,” police said. “The parent administered aid as directed by 9-1-1. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and determined the victim (was) deceased.”

The other student was hospitalized in stable condition.

LAPD said the students purchased what they believe were Percocet pills, which may have been laced with Fentanyl, from Lexington Park. Officers learned of two additional calls of overdoses in the area of Lexington Park.

“It is believed that the overdose victims are students of Bernstein and local high schools,” police said.
