Autopsy pending for man who apparently jumped to death at The Grove


An autopsy is pending for the 29-year-old man who apparently jumped to his death from a parking structure at The Grove on Sunday evening, coroner's officials said.

Los Angeles police were initially called to the shopping complex about 7:30 p.m. after a report of shots fired but discovered instead that a man had jumped from the seventh floor of a parking structure, officials said. He was reportedly with friends at the time.

The man's name will not be released until his family is notified, coroner's officials said Monday. An autopsy will be performed but had not been scheduled as of Monday morning.

Several people on Twitter reported seeing the man jump at the crowded shopping center.

"At the grove today and got off the elevator right after someone committed suicide," @PrisUribeRN wrote. "Thank goodness my daughters didn't see."

"I can't believe I witnessed a suicide at the Grove today. most horrifying experience in my life," @maryam wrote.

The Grove also tweeted about the incident late Sunday.

"We are so saddened by the young man's death tonight," read the message. "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family."
