“We convey our heartfelt condolences to the student’s family and friends for this devastating loss,” Lancaster wrote in an email.

“Authorities are determining the circumstances of the student’s death; at this time we have no indication of a community health or safety concern related to the student’s passing,” she wrote. “We will provide additional information as we learn more and talk with the student’s family regarding their wishes.”

Baltimore police spokesman Detective Donny Moses said police arrived at the university at around 8:20 p.m. to find medics already on the scene treating the woman inside her suite at the college.

She was pronounced dead at the scene by medics, Moses said, and police did not find any signs of an attack or self-inflicted wound.

Homicide detectives are investigating the death as “questionable.” Detectives are notified of every death in the city and frequently investigate unattended deaths.

The investigation is pending the results of an autopsy, Moses said.
