A man fell to his death from a third-floor flat during an aggravated burglary, police revealed. Sheiku Adams, 49, died in hospital after the fall in Camden, north London, on Thursday.
It is thought that two men forced their way into the home. Police were called shortly after 9pm and discovered Mr Adams on the ground outside with serious injuries.
He was taken to a north London hospital but he was pronounced dead at 11.56pm.
His next-of-kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination is to take place.
Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command, led by Detective Chief Inspector Noel McHugh, are investigating and are appealing to witnesses or anyone with information to get in touch.
Mr McHugh said: “Tragically a man has lost his life in what appears to have started as an aggravated burglary and ended in his death, after he fell from a third-floor window.
