A 20-year-old Chico State Student was found dead at an apartment complex pool in the north campus area yesterday evening.

Between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Chico Fire Department responded to a 9-1-1 call of a man floating in the swimming pool at the WestPark Plaza apartments on the 900 block of West 4th Avenue. That's where first responders found Aaron Drange in the pool and transported him to Enloe Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Butte County Coroner is contracting out the autopsy which has not yet been scheduled.

The Chico Police Department is not viewing this drowning as a crime.
