Montgomery County Police this morning are investigating a possible suicide in the 4500 block of North Park Avenue in Chevy Chase, where officers have closed off the road at Friendship Boulevard and set up a perimeter around the body.

A neighbor, who said he spoke to a resident in the building, said a 92-year-old man jumped from his 14th floor balcony just before 7:30 a.m.

Capt. Jim Daly, a police spokesperson, said detectives from the Department’s Major Crimes Unit are on the scene. Daly said police responded for a possible suicide at 7:29 a.m.

Officers have erected a tarp to block view of the body from residents and passerby. North Park Avenue is closed at the intersection.
