A 67-year-old Corvallis woman died Thursday after jumping from the roof of a downtown building.

Lt. Jason Harvey, with the Corvallis Police Department, said officers responded at 4:16 p.m. to a call of a woman on the roof of the Corvallis Arms Hotel residential building at 205 SW Second Street. He said before officers could get to the woman, she jumped.

Medical personal transported the woman to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.

“There is nothing to indicate this is anything other than a suicide,” he said.

Police were not ready to release the woman’s name Friday afternoon.
