PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University officials confirmed a student was found deceased inside a bedroom of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house on Monday morning.

Pullman police responded to an unconscious male at 565 NE Colorado Street in Pullman around 12:50 a.m. after a housemate of the student called 911.

Police said emergency responders attempted several life saving measures but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"There are no signs of violence, nothing suspicious at this time," said Chris Tennant, the Pullman PD public information officer. "As far as we are concerned, the investigation from the police end of this is over."

The student, who has not been identified yet, was found inside a bedroom of the fraternity. He was 21 years old. 

"We talked to numerous house members who lived there, who knew him and they didn't have anything suspicious to add," said Tennant. "I just caution people, don't speculate too soon. This could be a medical condition for all we know."

Pullman PD said they will have to wait on the coroner's report. Toxicology testing usually takes five to six weeks.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
