The six Goodyear students who rushed to a hospital Tuesday after being given pills have been released.

Goodyear police say they’re still waiting on confirmation what the pills were, but believe two 13-year-old students at Centerra Mirage School supplied them from their own prescriptions.

One student was found unconscious Tuesday and the rest had symptoms of abdominal pain and lethargy before paramedics took them to a hospital.

Police are submitting one misdemeanor and two felony counts against both boys. The juvenile court will review the recommendations and ultimately decide whether to charge the students.

None of the other kids who took the pills will face charges.
