Tragedy struck the campus of Tyler Junior College as police responded to the residence hall after a student was found unresponsive.

According to KLTV, around 7:50 p.m. Saturday (August 14th) a female student was unresponsive as emergency medical services were notified to aid the student.

The school released a press release shortly stating the student was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace James Meridith and also requested a post-mortem examination to determine the cause of death.

The student's parents were notified and met with campus officials.

Our thoughts and prayers are going out to the TJC family during this difficult time.
