A 23-year-old man has died after jumping off the roof of a local bike store last week.
The Mesa County Coroner's Office says Christopher Eastman of Grand Junction died from massive head injuries suffered from the jump.
Police say Eastman may have been jumping from the roof to grab onto a tree to evade police.
He missed the tree and fell.
The Coroner is calling the death an accident, but police are investigating why he was on the roof to begin with.
