The school released a statement confirming Hollywood's death, which Ryan O'Gara of the Star Press shared:
On behalf of Ball State University, it is with profound sadness that we learned today of the passing of Zachary "Zach" Hollywood, a student from Bradley, Illinois. Zach has been a part of our community for the past year. During his time on campus, he was a member of the men's basketball team and made many positive impressions throughout campus. This is a tragedy. Our heartfelt condolences are with his family, friends and teammates.
O'Gara noted Hollywood was found at Varsity House Apartments and died at the scene.
