A deadly overdose was reported on Black Friday at one of the area's most popular shopping centers.

A 35-year-old man died in a department store bathroom at the Huntington Mall.

Barboursville police said that they responded to a man's overdose call about 6:20 a.m. on Black Friday, but when they got there not even Narcan could save his life.

Emergency Medical Services crews tried to revive him using CPR, but were unsuccessful.

Barboursville police said the man's girlfriend dropped him off to go Christmas shopping and he had several ad fliers with him showing that he had every intention to shop that morning.

Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy to confirm what caused the overdose.
