Huffington Post reports that a New York University student was found dead in the school's main library this morning shortly before 5 a.m.
Andrew Williams-Noble, a junior , is thought to have jumped to his death in Bobst Library, although the school has yet to confirm this. NYPD officials told NYUNews.com simply that it was a "non-criminal" action.
The library was the scene of two suicides in 2003 which lead to the installation of protective panels along the railings to prevent further deaths.
An NYU spokesperson has issued a statement to the University community.
