A body was found in a conference room at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino in what was described as an “isolated incident.”

A Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson told the San Jose Mercury News that a man was found dead early this morning on campus.

“Through further investigation they determined that there were no other individuals involved and they believe it was an isolated incident, and that there’s nobody else on the campus or in the public that is at risk,” Sgt. Andrea Urena told the newspaper.

An emergency call recording, obtained by TMZ, reported a person in a conference room bleeding from the head and possibly armed.

Update: Urena held a briefing on the Cupertino campus earlier today in which she released basic details about the incident, which is still under investigation by the coroner’s office. She said deputies were dispatched to 1 Infinite Loop at 8:35 am PT Wednesday to respond to a call about an individual who was down.

When deputies arrived, they found a deceased man and determined no one else was at risk. Urena declined to respond to questions regarding the cause of death, including reports of a gunshot wound to the head. The man was an Apple employee whose name is being withheld, Urena said.

Apple has issued a statement expressing condolences to his friends and family.

“We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of a young and talented coworker. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends, including the many people he worked with here at Apple,” said a spokesperson. “We are working to support them however we can in this difficult time.”
