LOS ANGELES (AP) - Officials say an autopsy is being done to determine the cause of a high school athlete's death.

Los Angeles police told KCBS-TV they were investigating 17-year-old Salvador Preciado's Friday night death as toxic poisoning from alcohol.

Friends told KCBS that Preciado was so drunk he fell off a table and hit his head. One friend took him to another friend's home so he could sleep it off.

But when the teen's mother couldn't reach him on his cell phone, she went to the house and discovered her son dead.

More than 200 students and relatives attended a memorial Sunday night outside Panorama High School where Preciado was scheduled to graduate this year.

Grief counselors were due on campus Monday.
