A 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after another man died after falling from a window in Liverpool.
Police were called around 9.55pm on Sunday after a man in his 40s fell from the property on Longmoor Lane near the junction of Inglis Road in Walton.
Emergency services attended and the man was taken to hospital where he died, Merseyside Police said in a statement.
The arrested 43-year-old was known to the alleged victim and was taken into custody for questioning.
Officers conducted forensic investigations and went from house to house at the scene after the incident while nearby security footage was also reviewed.
