BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Buffalo Police homicide detectives are investigating the death of a Buffalo woman who fell five stories to her death Saturday afternoon.

Officers were called to the Shoreline Apartments at 200 Niagara Street just after 12:30 p.m. Saturday. When they arrived, they fund the body of a deceased female victim on the ground.

Police believe the victim to be in her late 40's, and her cause of death remains under investigation while investigators await the results of an autopsy.

Police are questioning witnesses and neighbors but say they are still not sure if the woman fell, jumped or was forced from the fifth floor apartment balcony.

Buffalo Police are asking anyone with information to call or text a tip to the confidential tip line at (716) 847-2255
