Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators say a man who plunged to his death from an apartment window was injured before the fall.

Officials say deputies responding to reports of a stabbing found the man dead on a residential block in West Hollywood early Monday.

A sheriff’s statement says there is evidence the victim was injured before he fell to his death. Detectives are trying to determine whether that injury was self-inflicted or caused by someone else.

Sheriff’s Lt. Derrick Alfred tells KABC-TV there were signs of a possible scuffle inside the apartment, and detectives are working to determine if the fall was intentional or accidental.

An autopsy is pending.
