The victim’s wife said her husband was worked up because he had been in a heated argument at Market Basket with Doherty. The argument was related to the man’s son being passed over for a promotion in the Revere Fire Department some years ago.

Revere Police are investigating a fatal overdose that occurred in a car early Thursday morning on Calumet Street – including whether or not another person fled the scene without calling 9-1-1, an action that might have saved the woman’s life.
Police said around 12:52 a.m. on Thursday, a car parked in front of a home on Calumet Street and neighbors found it suspicious. Witnesses called police and said someone might have fled the scene.
The witnesses noticed the woman in the car in distress, and they actually had Narcan in their home. Witnesses administered Narcan at the scene as police responded to the area.
When officers arrived, they also administered Narcan and the woman was later taken to CHA Everett Hospital.
She died there shortly after arrival.
Lt. Amy O’Hara said it is important for everyone to know that the Good Samaritan Law passed in 2012 prevents anyone who reports a drug overdose from being charged.
In the case above, it’s possible that the person in the car could have reported the overdose, been protected by the law, and also saved someone’s life.
