The employee was identified Thursday as 25-year-old Edward Mackowiak, a software engineer. He died from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office said.

"The Medical Examiner determined the manner of death was suicide and the cause was a gunshot to the head," the sheriff's office said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

Around 8:38 a.m. on Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to Apple headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, where they found a man's body, Andrea Urena, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office told BuzzFeed News.

"After further investigation it appeared there was no foul play and no other individuals were involved," Urena said. "This appeared to be an isolated incident and no employees or members of the public are at risk."

Mackowiak's body was found in a conference room at the Cupertino campus.
