Spike in heroin overdoses, Deadly bar shooting, Win Cavs vs Heat tickets

Police in Lorain County are in a race against time to find an extraordinarily dangerous batch of heroin responsible for a record number of overdoses.  "We've had 16 in the last 24 hours."  County Coroner Dr. Stephen Evans sees the heroin spike this weekend, which included three deaths, as epidemic.

There's blood stained pavement and bloody clothes just outside the back door of the Whistle Stop Bar in Canton. Police say this is where four people were shot - one shot dead. It happened around what would be closing time - 2:38 A.M.  "It's really stunning to know that happened," says Kenneth Clifton who works nearby. He is one of many who heard about the shooting and came here to see the scene for themselves. He says an eyewitness told him what went down.
