St. Paul police are investigating the death of a 20-year-old man at a fraternity house near the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus. 

Police were called to the Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR) house on the 2000 block of Carter Ave. around 5 a.m. Wednesday on a report of an unresponsive male, and first responders arriving on scene confirmed the 20 year old had died. 

Police spokesman Steve Linders said alcohol may have been a factor in the death, but hazing and initiation is not suspected, nor is any other type of foul play. 

People inside the house at the time of the victim's death were questioned at police headquarters and were cooperative with investigators. 

It's unclear if the student was a member of the Lambda Chapter of AGR, which refers to itself as a "national professional/social agricultural fraternity." 

The student's identity will be released following notification of family members, and cause of death will be announced after the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office conducts an autopsy.
