Police are investigating the death of a Boston University student from New Hampshire who was found unconscious at a home in Boston.

Boston police say someone called 911 to report that Anthony Barksdale II was unconscious at a Wadsworth Street home.

The engineering student was pronounced dead at St. Elizabeth Medical Center early Saturday, three hours after emergency medical workers took him there.

Boston University reports that its police department said there was no indication of foul play.

A Boston police spokesman says the medical examiner will determine the manner and cause of death.

Barksdale was a 2012 graduate of Souhegan High School in Amherst, N.H. He earned several awards, including a U.S. Marine Corps Scholastic Excellence Award.

Counselors will be available Saturday evening at the dorm in which Barksdale lived.

This program aired on March 2, 2013. The audio for this program is not available.
