...

The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s department is investigating after a dead body was found in a conference room at Apple’s Cupertino, California, headquarters this morning. Early reports suggest a suicide. At the time of this writing, the body has not been publicly identified, and no additional information has yet been provided by acting spokesperson Sgt. Andrea Urina, according to NBC Bay Area.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that a call was placed at 8:38 AM, reporting a “possible suicide.” The dispatch call alluded to a female employee involved in an argument on campus, who sustained a head injury — possibly from a gunshot wound — while being escorted out by security. Later reports suggest the body was that of a man, discovered in the conference room with a firearm. The Santa Clara County Fire Department was also called to the scene initially, but never actually entered the campus before being sent away.

The news comes a day after Apple announced its first year-over-year revenue decline in 13 years. Citing falling iPhone demand and slowing Mac sales, the consumer electronics giant announced revenues for the second quarter of $50.6 billion, a 13 percent decline from last year. The quarter’s net income also went down from last year’s $13.6 billion to 10.5 billion, which comes out to be $1.90 a share. The company’s gross margin dipped from 2015’s 40.8 percent, to 39.4 percent.

Apple representatives did not immediately reply to a Digital Trends request for more information. Matt Keller, a local ABC reporter on the scene, said the company was not commenting on the reported death. We will update this story with more details as they are released to the public.
