Man Dead Following Fall From Building

A man is dead after apparently falling from the roof of a six-story Grand Concourse apartment building at approximately 9 p.m. this evening. Police were at the scene in minutes, but there was clearly little they could do. Someone placed a white sheet over the body. As a crowd gathered, rumors began to swirl. One man said the dead man jumped. Another said he was he was being chased by a cop and toppled over the edge. The deceased has yet to be identified. One bystander described him as 30-something-year-old black male, who lived on the building's fourth floor. The building is at 1900 Grand Concourse, in the Mount Hope section of the Bronx. Check back for updates.

Update: According to the Daily News the man, James Harris, fell from a fourth floor window, not the roof, after climbing onto an air conditioning unit while trying to escape cops who had knocked on his apartment door to serve an arrest warrant.
