Marquis Brown died after jumping from his 16th floor dorm room.

A Duquesne University football player is dead after jumping from the 16th floor of a dorm.

Campus police were called to that floor around 10:30 p.m. on Thursday about a disturbance.

When they got there, they found out Marquis Brown, a junior at Duquesne, had jumped out of a window.

"He was at my apartment down here," Brown's friend Eric Williams Jr told KDKA-TV. "I just saw him 30 or 40 minutes before, so it is just shocking."

Brown eventually died at the hospital. No foul play is suspected.

A private memorial service for Brown is expected to be held this weekend.

Police haven't said anything about what may have led up to his decision to jump, but no foul play is suspected.
