PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police said a man jumped from the 11th floor of a southwest Portland apartment building after taking psilocybin mushrooms at a New Year's party.

He was found dead just after 2:30 a.m. at 301 S.W. Lincoln St. Investigators said he jumped without warning from the 11th floor of the Lovejoy Fountain Tower.

Officers interviewed friends of the man and learned he had been at a party earlier and said he'd consumed mushrooms.

The Oregon state medical examiner is working to positively determine the man's identity and notify family.
