Police in Corvallis, Ore., say a college-age young man has been found dead with a gunshot wound in the parking lot of a fraternity house near Oregon State University.

Lt. Cord Wood tells the Corvallis Gazette-Times that preliminary evidence suggests the death may have been a suicide. A passer-by discovered the body about 5 p.m. Monday and called 911.

Wood says “there doesn’t appear to be anything criminal at this point.”

The body was found in a parking lot of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house.

The spokesman says it wasn’t immediately clear whether the man was a member of the fraternity. The house is bordered by apartment buildings.

The man was not immediately identified.
