PULLMAN, WA (KHQ) — Authorities are investigating the death of a Washington State University student.

Police were dispatched to the Alpha Tau Omega house Tuesday morning. When they arrived they found 19-year-old freshman Samuel Martinez, who appeared to not be breathing.

Other fraternity members had been performing CPR until medics arrived.
 
Officials say this doesn’t appear to be a hazing incident, but it may be alcohol related.  However, they caution there is still an active investigation underway.

In a statement Washington State University expressed their condolences, and said the WSU Greek system has suspended all social events for the rest of the semester.
