A body was found in the street on Spring Street between 6th and 7th streets.

The body of an adult male was found in the middle of a downtown L.A. street on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Bruce Borihanh, an LAPD public information officer, said a call came in a little after 11 a.m. reporting a body on Spring Street between 6th and 7th streets.

Initially police believed the person was a transient, but it turns out he had jumped from a nearby building in what was an "apparent suicide," said Borihanh. Police think he may have been a resident of one of those buildings.

The investigation is ongoing.
