Doctors gave Prince a “save shot”—generally used in opiate overdoses—six days before his death, TMZ reported, citing multiple sources. The music legend’s jet was forced to land last week in Illinois, just 48 minutes from his Minnesota home, and he was rushed to the hospital. His representatives at the time told TMZ he was suffering from the flu. Authorities in Minnesota are working to determine a cause of death after Prince was found unresponsive in his Paisley Park studio Thursday morning, and an autopsy will be conducted.
Late Thursday, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office released the 911 transcript with an unidentified male who called to report that Prince was dead. “We have someone who is unconscious,” he told dispatcher Emily Colestock. “We’re at Prince’s house.” The man struggled to find an address before identifying Prince’s home at Paisley Park. “You’re at Paisley Park, OK, that’s in Chanhassen.” “The person is dead here,” he said. “And the people are just distraught.” Colestock asked if he knew how the person died, to which the man said “I don’t know, I don’t know.”
