A tragic accident on the University of Nevada, Reno campus.
Police say a 20-year-old junior has been declared brain dead after a fall down some stairs over the weekend.
Officials at Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center will not give any details of Michael Pietrzak's condition at the request of his parents.
Pietrzak, who would have turned 21 later this month, had gone to the U-N-R football game on Saturday with some friends and later returned to their home on 15th Street.
He fell a short time later.
His friends reported that the group had been drinking, but the extent was unknown.
Police are waiting for toxicology results.
