It happened around noon Tuesday. Police say it appears he fell off a building in the 900 block of Liberty Avenue.

There’s no word on what caused him to fall, but police say the victim, in his 40s, “fell from a good distance.” He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they can’t tell yet if he fell from the roof or a fire escape, nor can they say for certain why he was at the building.

They’re now checking for video and talking to witnesses.
