Pittsburgh police are investigating a "medical situation" that left three people dead and four others hospitalized Sunday morning.
All seven people were wearing orange paper wrist bands, which may offer clues, Pittsburgh Director of Public Safety Wendell Hissrich said. He said all are believed to be middle-aged men.
Authorities responded to a report of an unconscious man around 2 a.m. Sunday on the city's south side. They found a man dead at the scene, Hissrich said.
Shortly later, paramedics responded to another man who was "somewhat conscious" and had symptoms similar to that of the first man. He was taken to a nearby hospital, Hissrich said.
Police traced both men back to an apartment in which five more people were found. CNN affiliate KDKA identified the complex as the Southside Works City Apartments.

Lacking any information, I’m going to guess they were guests at a party, the admission for which was the orange wrist band, where some toxic comestibles or inhalants were distributed.
See, see! Them muh Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats and toting them AR-15s again!
Add to that the fact that they were all middle-aged men
UPDATE (8:43 a.m.) Director Wendell Hissrich confirms three dead
and four in hospital with conditions ranging from serious to critical.
Five victims found in apartment, one in elevator outside apartment
and one on street at 26th/Carson.
Police have identified two venues that were using orange wrist bands
My guess is a homo drug/sex party.
If the first man was dead, I’m wondering what symptoms the second man was displaying that was similar to the first man. Does that mean he was dead too?
Thanks to post 2 which seems to draw some reasonable tentative conclusions from very incomplete information.
My guess was that a University of Tennessee football party led to a mass suicide attempt, but post 2 is a much more modest interpretation of available “evidence.”
There is a price for hedonistic decadence.
KDKA:”Police say theyre aware of two Pittsburgh venues that used orange wrist bands last night.”
Body said to be found at Southside Works apartments. Am not from Pitt. but visit twice a year. This is near Hofbrauhaus, stores, restaurants.
Two bucks says it’s fentynal.
“Conditions” ranging up to dead and critical?
Weird phrasing. Not shot or stabbed.
I cant say Ibe ever been to a house party where guests are given colored wrist bands to wear. Seems strange to me.
Yeah. Some kind of weirdo situation.
perhaps a nightclub
Oh, well. Civil society eins another one.
I live in suburbs of Pittsburgh. First I heard of this.
Did they have the fish?
CNN, look! Orange bands, orange man bad, there has to be a connection.
Gay chemsex party. How embarrassing
Let me guess.
You are attracted to the opposite sex, right?
