parking garages in downtown are not enclosed. All open with steel fences, but not fully closed.

I drove in to the garage about 5 minutes after it happened. He'd simply walked in off the street, gone to the 11th, climbed up on the top wall (about two spots from where I park) and stepped off. It is terribly sad.

I drove in to the garage about 5 minutes after it happened. As the parking garage staff later figured out from the garage's video feed, the young man walked in off the street, went to the 11th floor, climbed up on wall (it's a top floor, so the wall/ledge is about four feet high) and simply stepped over the edge. They said he was only 22. His body was still on the ground when I let the garage. It's so sad.
