CARMERTON, N.C. (AP) - Officials are investigating after they say a worker fell to his death at a construction site in Cramerton.

Cramerton police tell news outlets in a statement that 49-year-old Javier Antonio Gomez-Gonzales of Charlotte died Thursday morning.

Police say Gomez-Gonzales was working for Baja Exterior of Stanley on a house construction site when he fell from the roof. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police Chief Greg Ratchford says there is no reason to suspect the death was anything more than an accident.

The North Carolina Department of Labor is also looking into the incident.
