The police say a Yale University student jumped to his death from the ninth floor of an off-campus apartment building Tuesday morning, moments after stabbing a fellow student.

The New Haven police said the events happened around 5:30 a.m. at an apartment complex across from the Yale campus.

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

The police say the stabbing victim, Alexander Michaud, is in stable condition at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Officials said the men were acquaintances and Yale students but released no other details.

A Yale spokesman had no immediate comment.
