New Haven, Conn. — Police say a Yale University student jumped to his death from the ninth floor of an off-campus apartment building moments after stabbing a fellow student.

New Haven police say it happened around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at an apartment complex across the street from the Ivy League campus.

Officials say the suspect fell six stories onto a third-floor terrace. His name is being withheld pending notification of his family.

Police say 21-year-old stabbing victim Alexander Michaud is in stable condition at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Officials say the men were acquaintances and Yale students.

A Yale spokesman had no immediate comment.

Authorities haven’t released details of what happened before the stabbing and jump.
