PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a 21-year-old man who fell from a balcony in downtown Portland.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says officers found the man deceased Thursday morning on Southwest Mill Street. They had responded to a call about a man falling from the ninth floor of an apartment building.

The man’s name has yet to be released.

Police say based on information gathered at the scene, they believe the fall was accidental and that alcohol may have been a factor.

Traffic near the apartment building was restricted during the investigation.
