Dallas police have identified an 18-year-old student who died of apparent alcohol poisoning after attending a prom and ending up at a hotel. Police say autopsy results are pending on Jonathan Sierra, who went to Dallas Skyline High School.

The school's prom was held Saturday night in neighboring Mesquite. Police say Sierra and some friends later went to a party.

Sr. Cpl. Gerardo Monreal says officers responded Sunday to the Aloft Dallas Downtown Hotel on a call about a deceased person.

Police want to know who provided the alcohol. The legal drinking age in Texas is 21.
