STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A Penn State University student is dead after he fell from the ninth floor balcony of an off-campus apartment building.
State police said 20-year-old Conor Macmannis was pronounced dead at the scene early Saturday. The fall occurred at 3:43 a.m. at the Penn Towers building on Beaver Avenue.
Police say a preliminary investigation indicates drugs and alcohol apparently were factors in the fall.
Investigators are urging anyone with information about the incident to call or at least provide an anonymous tip.
