Two men are dead after one of them jumped from the top of a building, hitting and killing the second man below overnight in Westchester County.

The incident took place around 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 20 at 77 Locust Hill Ave., in Yonkers.

According to Yonkers Police, a distraught 25-year-old man jumped off the roof of the building, falling 12 stories onto the concrete parking garage roof below and striking a 61-year-old man; both men died at the scene. 

Investigators are interviewing witnesses and family members at this time and reviewing surveillance videos. 

The incident appears to be a tragic situation and the investigation is ongoing, said Det. Lt. Dean Politopoulos, of the Yonkers Police.
