HOUSTON (Reuters) - Officials with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on Wednesday raided a Houston clinic owned by Conrad Murray, the doctor who was with pop icon Michael Jackson when he died, according to local news reports.

Jackson, 50, died of cardiac arrest at his rented Los Angeles home on June 25, just a few weeks before a planned string of 50 comeback concerts in London.

At least a dozen DEA agents and officers from the Los Angeles Police Department entered the Armstrong Medical Clinic in northeast Houston, according to the local ABC News affiliate.

Spokesmen for the DEA and Murray were not immediately available to comment on the reports.

Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician and was at his side when he died, has told police he did not inject the singer with painkillers before his cardiac arrest.
