PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Portland police say a person has died after apparently falling from a downtown parking garage Sunday afternoon.
Sgt. Pete Simpson says there's no indication of foul play, but it's unclear whether the person fell or jumped. He says the parking garage is 10 stories tall, but police aren't sure on which level the person was standing.
He says the person initially hit the hood and windshield of a parked car before landing on the sidewalk. He says the medical examiner will determine the person's gender and cause of death.
Police got a report around 2:30 p.m. that someone was down on the sidewalk near Southwest 6th Avenue and Washington Street. Medical personnel found the person dead when they arrived.
