(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A witness called police on Friday afternoon, after seeing a vehicle in the median on East Circle Drive NE, and Century Valley Rd NE.

When deputies got there, they found a 21-year-old man with shallow breaths.

They performed CPR, and when Gold Cross arrived, they believed it was a heroin overdose.

They gave him the drug Naloxone, and were able to revive him.

Heroin is becoming a big problem locally, something law enforcement is taking new steps to curb.
