A maintenance worker reported a submerged body in the outdoor pool at the Physical Education Building early Tuesday morning.

UTA Police responded and confirmed a deceased male in the pool, Capt. Mike McCord said in an email.

The man was in his mid-to-late twenties, he said. 

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s office is working with the department to identify the individual and to determine the cause of death.

“At this stage of the investigation, there are no signs of foul play and there is no reason to believe there is an ongoing threat to students on campus,” McCord said.

The UTA Police Department is investigating the incident and will be the primary investigating agency.
