Police are not treating Monday’s death of Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan at age 46 as suspicious, NBC News reports.

A police spokeswoman told NBC, “Her death is not being treated as suspicious.”

According to the spokeswoman, police responded at a hotel where “a 46-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene.” Police have declined to release her name.

A publicist for the “Linger” singer confirmed her death Monday, saying that she had been recording in London.

“Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today. The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries, was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time,” a statement issued by the publicist said. “Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Formed in Limerick in 1989, the Cranberries found success with alternative rock hits including “Linger,” “Dreams” and “Zombie.”
