A 16-year-old Hamilton Montana high school student is dead and a 15-year-old boy is hospitalized after they apparently overdosed.

They had taken prescription medication, but Hamilton Police Chief Ryan Oster says he's waiting for lab results to confirm the cause of the boy's death.

The High School has brought in counselors to support the classmates of the dead and hospitalized students.
