NORWALK - University of Connecticut police are investigating the death of a student from Norwalk.

Police say 19-year-old Sean Sullivan was found unresponsive in his dorm room Monday and could not be revived. They say Sullivan was a freshman economics major.

Sullivan graduated from Norwalk High School in June. The high school says there are counselors at the school for any students and staff who need extra support during this difficult time. 

Police do not suspect foul play or criminal involvement and say they're waiting for the medical examiner's report to determine the cause of death.

A special service for Sullivan will be held Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the St. Jerome Catholic Church in Norwalk.
