SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A 70-year-old man jumped from the 15th floor of Toomey Abbott Towers in Syracuse and died Sunday, city police said.

At least two people called 911 at 12:13 p.m. to say the man had jumped out a window of the high-rise Toomey Abbott Towers — a public housing complex operated by the Syracuse Housing Authority — at 1207 Almond St.

Syracuse police and firefighters responded to the call.

When officers arrived, the man was dead, city police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Malinowski said. Police did not release the man’s name and said his death was ruled a suicide.

Authorities said the man lived at Toomey Abbott Tower, a 310-apartment complex for senior citizens.
