Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A reportedly suicidal man in downtown Duluth forced authorities to block off nearby streets Thursday night.

Police say the 34-year-old man had threatened to jump from the 10th story of the Gateway Tower on Michigan Street.

Police say he was outside the window, when it appeared he had changed his mind and starting yelling for help.

That's when police say he ended up slipping and falling to his death.

No foul play is suspected.
