MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Minnesota man suspected of providing a party drug to a group of teenagers who overdosed, including one who died.

The man arrested Friday was identified as a 21-year-old from Blaine, the northern Minneapolis suburb where the overdoses took place Wednesday.

Anoka County sheriff's commander Paul Sommer says the man is suspected of buying the hallucinogenic drug called 2C-E that the group took.

The man is being held on suspicion of third-degree murder. The exact charges are due to be filed Monday by prosecutors.
