TOWSON, Md. - An Army veteran and Towson University student has died.

Baltimore County police say 27-year-old Timothy Coyer was found dead by his roommates inside his apartment near campus Saturday afternoon.

Although the cause and manner of death are not known, police say Coyer's death was not a homicide. An autopsy will be conducted at the state Medical Examiner's office.

Coyer was a member of the Army National Guard. He identified himself on his Facebook page as an Army veteran and a Towson student. Police say he is believed to have served in Iraq.

The Towson campus was hit with the news of two student deaths on Saturday. Earlier, 20-year-old Ryan Bailey of Seaford, N.Y., was killed in a hit-and-run. Bailey was a junior accounting major.
