LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A law enforcement official said a potent anesthetic given to Michael Jackson came from a Las Vegas pharmacy that was searched Tuesday by police and federal drug agents.

The official told The Associated Press that Dr. Conrad Murray told investigators he gave Jackson propofol and multiple sedatives in the hours before he died.

Propofol normally is used to render patients unconscious for medical procedures. It's only supposed to be administered by anesthesia professionals in medical settings.

Investigators discovered large amounts of the drug and other medications in Jackson's home after his death on June 25.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the drug was legally sold to Murray by Applied Pharmacy Services. That's the pharmacy that was searched by Los Angeles and Las Vegas police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents.

Murray's attorney has said the doctor didn't give Jackson anything that "should have" killed him.
