Police said there is a death at the location that appears to be a suicide and the medical examiner is working to determine a cause.

The victim’s identity has not been released.

A hazardous materials team responded because police reportedly discovered a bag of unidentified chemicals beside the victim.

The air inside and around the lab where the body was found was tested and nothing harmful was found.
