On Thursday, Indian River Towers was blocked off from late afternoon to early evening by the Florida Atlantic Police Department due to a death on campus.
At 3:30 p.m. there were several campus police cars, two crime scene investigation vans and FAU Community Service Officers outside the building’s main entrance near the front parking lot. Members of Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services were also called to the scene, but left around 3:45 p.m.
The parking lot immediately in front of IRT was blocked off by cones. Only residents were allowed to enter and exit the building.
