Police have charged a 16-year-old 'drug dealer' with murder after a schoolgirl died from a fatal overdose of fentanyl.

Dalilah Guerrero, 12, took part of a pill she believed was the painkiller Percocet but was actually laced with the potentially lethal opioid. 

The San Jose schoolgirl was rushed to hospital but was later pronounced dead in the November 2020 incident.

Prosecutors say there is footage of Dalilah lining up a crushed pill to snort. Shortly afterwards she passed out and began snoring, a 'telltale sign of a fentanyl overdose'.

She became the youngest person to fatally overdose from fentanyl in Santa Clara County in 2020, according to the DA's office. 

A 16-year-old 'drug dealer' has been charged with the murder of 12-year-old Dalilah Guerrero who died from fatally overdose of fentanyl that had been laced into a painkiller, prosecutors have announced.
