One Croton resident is dead and his brother hospitalized after an apparent overdose of heroin this afternoon, police said.
Police were called by the men's father.
Patrols found the men at their home at 6 Wren Lane, in the Town Ridge development near the Cortlandt border.
Croton Police Sgt. John Nikitopolous said the 911 call came in at 1:28 p.m. March 19 to New York State police because it was made from a cell phone.
Patrols responded to the townhouse complex and found George Landers, 25, in his bedroom on the second floor. He was unresponsive.
His younger brother, Michael Landers, 23, was found in the living room.
After police cleared the scene, a paramedic pronounced George Landers dead at 1:45 p.m. His body was removed by the Westchester County Medical Examiner's office.
Michael Landers, who was conscious, was transported to Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow by the Croton EMS, Nikitopoulos said.
The incident is under investigation.
