Cedric Moore, an upstairs neighbor who heard the incident said, "I just heard a lot of screaming; a lot of yelling," Moore said.
An ASU spokesperson confirmed that the victim was a student at the school but provided no further details.Authorities say the man was dead at the scene and his body was found near the seventh-level pool area.
According to residents of the building, the apartments are considered a popular "after party spot," for students when the bars close.
A similar incident happened in 2014 when an ASU student died after falling from a balcony in the 922 Place apartment complex.
The investigation is ongoing at the time.
