CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — An Apple employee that the company described as “young and talented” was found dead in a conference room inside the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, authorities said.

Sgt. Andrea Urena of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said the death of the male employee was an isolated incident and that no foul play is suspected.

Deputies were called about 8:35 a.m. Wednesday for a report of “a person down” at 1 Infinite Loop and found a dead man, she said. “They determined there were no other individuals involved and they believe it was an isolated incident and that there was nobody else on campus or in the public at risk,” Urena said.

The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office will determine how the man died, she said.

Urena wouldn’t comment on the circumstances of the death. “I can’t confirm any information regarding a manner or cause of death, or any weapons,” she said.

Apple said in a statement it is working to support the people who worked with the “young and talented” man. It declined to identify him.

“We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker,” the company said. “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple.”
