SLIPPERY ROCK — Slippery Rock University police are investigating the death of a student found Wednesday morning at a baseball field on the campus.

Authorities have not released the deceased's name but it appears the death was a suicide, said SRU spokesman Robb King.

Investigators said police were notified shortly after 10:35 a.m. when a 911 caller reported that there was a male laying at Wally Rose Field with an apparent gunshot wound.

The field is on Maltby Avenue behind the Art Metals Building.

A handgun was recovered at the scene, authorities said.

SRU police were assisted by the state police records & identification division. No other information was immediately available.
