A man in his mid-40s fell or jumped to his death Monday afternoon from the eight-story parking structure adjacent to San Diego City Hall, police said.
Police are investigating initial reports that the man may have been attempting to hang a banner in support of the Occupy San Diego movement about 3 p.m.
Several hundred protesters are camped out in the plaza adjacent to City Hall and the parking structure.
Update : This is now being reported as an apparent suicide.
A witness told police that the man was possibly hanging a sign off the parking structure when he fell several stories and landed in the concourse area near Golden Hall about 3:15 p.m., police said.
Police determined that the man was not hanging signs, although fliers were found near the body that read: “Important message to intelligent earthlings from your creators.”
