The cause of death is still unknown, and the investigation is ongoing, said Cpl. Matt Kuhrt of the WSU Police Department. No foul play is suspected.
The police received a 911 call from the residence hall at 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Those who found the student performed CPR on him until medics arrived, Kuhrt said. Hummel was then transported to Pullman Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
