KAHULUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Maui teenager is dead and another is in stable condition after attending a house party in Kahului.

According to the Maui Police Department, a 15-year-old male brought prescription pain medications and offered it to party goers just after midnight Thursday.

Police say the teen and a 19-year-old male from Kihei were later spotted ingesting the medication while drinking beer.

When police arrived to the scene, the 19 year old appeared to be in distress. He was transported to the Maui Memorial Hospital for overnight treatment and was later upgraded to stable condition. He is expected to be released later Friday.
