Morgan State University Student Dies After Exercising at Gym

Morgan State University officials say a student died suddenly after exercising at a campus gymnasium. 

Dmitri Clemons, 21, of Silver Spring was working out in Hurt Gymnasium on campus Wednesday when he collapsed, university spokesman Clint Coleman said. 

He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. An autopsy will determine the cause of Clemons' death. 

His death comes days after the off-campus stabbing death of another university student, sophomore Marcus Edwards. 

University Vice President of Student Affairs Kevin Banks said in a letter to the campus community that Clemons, a senior civil engineering major, was vice president of the campus American Society of Civil Engineering and was expected to graduate in December.
