Miami police are investigating the death of Adam Levine, a 21-year-old student at University of Miami, who died in the hospital after attending Ultra Music Festival on March 18. He died of complications of a seizure, according to WSVN-Ch.7, though an official cause of death hasn’t yet been released by the Miami-Dade County medical examiner.

Ultra Music Festival’s chief of security Ray Martinez wrote in an e-mail: “While we don’t have many details, we know that our security personnel noticed that Adam was having difficulties and immediately called Miami Fire paramedics so medical assistance could occur. From what we have been told, paramedics initiated medical treatment and transported Adam to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Most unfortunately, Adam passed away at the hospital.”

The statement continues, “We, of course, are fully cooperating with the Miami police and the Miami-Dade medical examiner as they look into the circumstances surrounding this most unfortunate situation. At this time, we do not have any further details.”

Levine is being remembered by his classmates as “an incredible friend to many with a kind heart and an amazing sense of humor that could brighten anyone’s day.”

The University of Miami will hold a candlelight vigil for Levine at 9 pm Wednesday. Then on Friday, the University of Miami Hillel is hosting a memorial service during the Kabbalat Shabbat services at 6:30 pm.
