COLLEGE STATION, TX (KTRK) -- College Station police are investigating the death of another Texas A&M University student.

Andrew Sutter was found unresponsive Sunday evening by his roommate at a house in the 500 block of Fraternity Row. Police say the home was not a fraternity house.

Emergency crews found the 23-year-old student dead in the living room.

Police say Sutter suffered from a medical condition and had been ill for the past three days. Sutter's roommate told officers he left Sutter napping in the living room Sunday afternoon, but when he checked on him later, Sutter wasn't breathing and called for emergency help.

Sutter's family has been notified and an autopsy has been ordered. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the College Station Police Department at 979-764-3600.

There have been a number of student death this semester at A&M.

Just last week, Matthew Hayes, 20, was found unresponsive at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house. His cause of death has not been determined.

In August, Anton Gridnev, 19, died at the Sigma Nu house. He died of an apparent drug overdose. At the time of his death, four students were arrested at the frat house for possession of marijuana and another controlled substance. Sigma Nu Fraternity suspended all activities of the Kappa Sigma Chapter at Texas A&M University following Gridnev's death.

In September, Alannah Rose Ritch, 21, was riding her bike when she was hit by a College Station garbage truck.

Also in September, a 21-year-old student was fatally shot at her off-campus apartment. College Station police said Victor Manual Garcia-Loyo, 22, had been dating Maricarmen Quiroz-Octaviano. Garcia-Loyo has been charged with murder in her death.
