PORTLAND, Ore. -- Police say a man who jumped to his death from the 11th story of a downtown Portland apartment building was apparently high on illegal mushrooms.

Witnesses told police the man jumped without warning about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday from the Lovejoy Fountain Tower at 301 SW Lincoln Street.

He told friends at party earlier that he had consumed the mushrooms. Illegal mushrooms often cause hallucinations.

The man's name as not been released.

A woman died about 3 a.m. Tuesday after she plunged six stories from a Pearl District balcony in what police determined was either a suicide or accident.
