Man jumps to death during Occupy rally

SAN DIEGO, CA (KFMB/CNN) - A man reportedly jumped to his death Monday during the Occupy San Diego rally.

Police said the 42-year-old man leaped from a parking structure at Civic Center Plaza.

Police shut down a walkway and part of the 11-story building as investigators swarmed the area.

The man was pronounced dead by medics at the scene.

A spokesperson for the movement released a statement calling the man's death tragic. But there is no word if the man was a protester.

Occupiers have staged a rally near the location since last week.
