Man fell to his death at TSU campus, police say
Officials say a 55-year-old man fell to his death at a Tennessee State University dorm on Monday afternoon.
According to WJHL, the man, identified as Richard Bray, fell from the roof of Mary Wilson Hall, a six-floor dormitory, just after noon.
Metro police in Nashville said the man apparently stumbled and fell over backward. Police said other workers were about 40 or 50 feet away when they heard someone yell.
Bray was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he later died.
The 55-year-old man had been hired to do electrical work by a subcontractor.
TSU released a statement Monday afternoon that said in part, "We ask that you please keep the family in your prayers."
