The fire captain said there were contradictory accounts of what happened before the fall, and that the reason of the incident is still unknown. The incident is being treated as a suicide by the Santa Monica Police Department due to camera evidence showing the man jumping from the third level. Whether or not these people already knew each other is unknown.
