When police responded to the home in the town of Hopewell around 5:30 p.m., four children, ages 1, 2, 3 and 4, were unresponsive, WTVR said.

All seven children were taken to a hospital and the two youngest victims were transferred to another medical facility in serious condition, the report said.

Investigators told the outlet that the drugs were distributed by a 7-year-old who was left alone with the children when his adult manager left the house to go to a corner store.

The investigations continued.
