A man died Wednesday afternoon after falling several stories from the Parkade parking garage onto a downtown skywalk.

The man, who has not been identified, fell at about 4:30 p.m. onto the skywalk, which runs parallel to the 100 block of north Howard Street. He was dead when emergency crews arrived at the scene, said Assistant Chief Brian Schaeffer of the Spokane Fire Department.

Spokane Police are investigating, but were unsure Wednesday whether the fall was deliberate or accidental.
