    Authorities are investigating the death of a Washington State University student who was found dead at an off-campus house in Pullman, Washington, on Tuesday.

    Members of the Alpha Tau Omega called police after finding a 19-year-old male fraternity member unconscious and not breathing, according to the Pullman Police Department. Other students performed CPR, but medics who arrived on scene determined the young man had died, NBC News reported.

    A preliminary investigation indicated that the unidentified student's death may have been alcohol related, but the Whitman County Coroner has yet to determine the official cause of death.

    The death comes just days after a 19-year-old freshman died after leaving a fraternity event at San Diego State University.
