COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) -- A man is dead after falling unconscious at an off-campus party near Tennessee Tech University on Friday night. 

According to officials with the Cookeville Police Dept., officers responded to the residence near TTU after reports of an unconscious person.

The patient, identified as 23-year-old Paul Hamilton Ten Eyck, was given CPR at the scene and then transported to a local hospital where he died. 

According to campus officials, the man was not a student at the university.

Officials said they would release the man's name after his family is notified, and provide more details about the incident once their investigation is complete.
