An 18-year-old Georgia Southern University student was found unresponsive Friday at her off-campus apartment, and she was later pronounced dead, the university announced Monday morning.

Brooke Edwards, 18, of Cumming, was a sophomore biology major.

"The Georgia Southern family is deeply saddened by this loss and our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends during this difficult time," the university said in a statement. "Counseling services are available for Georgia Southern students."

The Statesboro Police Department is handling the investigation, according to the university, but no further details were immediately available.
