UCF police respond to call at Pointe at Central

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.UPDATE: Deputies have identified the person found dead as Kevin John McDonough, 20. His death was ruled a suicide.

University of Central Florida police are responding to a call about a death at the Pointe at Central apartments near the school's campus, according to officials from the UCF Police Department.

Police said the victim is not a UCF student and that they have no reason to believe the surrounding area or the school's campus is in any danger.

Majorie Fleurant was like many residents who got a mass text alert on Sunday after UCF police said they’re investigating a death. 

"I just want to make sure that I’m safe, and being uncertain of my safety does put a hindrance to me ," said Fleurant. 

UCF police cars are parked in front of the apartment complex as guards make sure only residents came on the property.  

Authorities haven’t yet released the victim’s name, gender or age or said if the person was a visitor or a resident of the apartment complex. 

Authorities said the Orange County Sheriff's Office will also be investigating the incident.

Officers are asking anyone with information on the death to call 800-423-8477.
