Jamel Chandler fell to his death from the 11th floor of a building while trying to escape police arrest
A robbery suspect identified as Jamel Chandler, 21 broadcast his final moments on Facebook Live before falling to his death from an 11th floor while trying to escape from police arrest.
He is quoted as saying: "I’m about to go to jail" as detectives banged on his front door.
He then fashioned a rope out of leopard-print bedsheets and made it down to the seventh floor before he plunged to the ground below.
Chandler, who had a four-year-old daughter, said on his Facebook Live stream: "Cops is at my door. They looking for me right now. They about to arrest me.
"I’m about to get arrested, they’re about to lock me up. Tune in, tune in, tune in.”
He later said: "I’m about to go to jail. I’m about to jump out the window. I’m on the 11th floor. I’m about to jump, bro, jump."
Chandler was wanted by police in Brooklyn, US, on suspicion of robbing a delivery driver, according to the New York Daily News .
He had reportedly just been freed from prison and was staying over at the apartment, which belonged to a friend.
His mum Joyce Ford said: "I can’t believe my child is in that morgue. It’s just not fair."
"Jamel was a happy-go-lucky young man," she continued. "He wanted more out of life than life was offering."
Photos show police officers and paramedics surrounding Chandler's body on the floor. He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
