PITTSBURGH (AP) — Officials say a 19-year-old student has died after he fell from a fifth-floor balcony at a Catholic university in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh police say Carlow University student Dalton Bacco, of West View, died around 5 p.m. Wednesday at a local hospital.

University spokesman Drew Wilson says the fall from the balcony of the University Commons building to the pavement occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. No other information was immediately available.

University and Pittsburgh police are investigating. Wilson says this is finals week at the university, which has about 2,200 undergraduate and graduate students.
