An Indianapolis teen died Monday from a suspected drug overdose on the city's southeast side.

The victim's girlfriend told police she woke up that morning to find her boyfriend unresponsive at a home on S. Kercheval Drive. That's near Troy and Southeastern. The 18-year-old was rushed to the hospital, but doctors weren't able to revive him.

Police interviewed the teen's three friends who took him to the hospital but they're still trying to determine what led up to his death and the type of drug he may have taken. Detectives requested an autopsy to answer those questions.
