Washington (CNN) -- Authorities have arrested two Georgetown University students and another person in connection to a suspected drug lab found inside a dormitory Saturday morning, D.C. Metro police said.
The three males, each at least 18, face charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, said Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman for the police department. The third individual was a campus visitor. None were identified.
Police said that shortly before 6 a.m., they received a call about a foul odor at Georgetown's Harbin Hall.
Initially, police thought the lab was for producing meth, but later said it was for making Dimethyltryptamine, a hallucinogenic drug commonly known as DMT.
DMT is an illegal substance, and the charges against the three men remain the same, Carew said.
Students possibly were exposed to the chemicals and seven people, including two security officers, were evaluated by medical personnel at the scene, said fire department spokesman Pete Piringer. No injuries were reported.
Harbin Hall was briefly evacuated for a couple of hours following the discovery the chemicals.
A Georgetown spokesman said the university would release a statement later in the day.
