LYNDONVILLE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a 24-year-old man known to have a food allergy died in Lyndonville after possibly coming into contact with the food.

Police say there is nothing suspicious about the death of Edward Alfred Horan II, of Hooksett, New Hampshire.

Emergency crews were called to a Lyndonville address at about 11:40 p.m. Sunday after receiving a report of a male subject who had collapsed from an allergic reaction. Horan was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the victim was reported by family to have a severe specific food allergy and he may have accidentally ingested some of the food, causing the allergic reaction. Police did not say what the food was.

The Vermont Medical Examiner will make a formal determination of the cause and manner of death.
