Duke University’s campus was locked down Thursday after a student fell to his death from a second-story window, the university said.
The student, identified by university officials as 22-year-old Jazmin Garcia, died at the hospital, university officials said.
The university said she was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
It was not immediately clear if Garcia was an incoming student.
A spokesman for the university confirmed to The Associated Press that she was an international student who graduated last month.
She did not have an English class, the school said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Jazmine Garcia’s family and friends at this time,” Duke President John Thrasher said in a statement.
“We take these events very seriously and are actively working with our campus partners to determine what happened,” he added.
“The safety of all students is our top priority.
We are actively looking into the circumstances and the cause of the incident.”
The student was a student in Garcia’s senior year, according to the university.
The Associated Students of Duke University told the AP that Garcia was planning to study computer science.
The school’s statement said the students were in classes that were canceled.
The statement did not say how long the classes were scheduled to last.
