Police investigating fatal fall from high-rise apartment building in downtown Denver

DENVER -- Police are investigating what led to a person falling from a high-rise residential building in downtown Denver Saturday evening. The fall was fatal, according to a tweet from the department.

The person fell from Brooks Tower, a 42-floor apartment building at the corner of 15th and Curtis Streets. The building's website says it offers a variety of short-term, luxury apartments.

Officers closed 15th Street while investigators worked at the scene. As of 9:15 p.m., two lanes of the road were open.
