Brooklyn robbery suspect falls to death on Facebook Live

FORT GREENE -

A robbery suspect fell to his death on Facebook Live while attempting to avoid police, according to officials. 

Jamel Chandler, 21, fell to his death Tuesday while attempting to repel out of a window by tying five bedsheets together at a housing complex in Fort Greene, police say. 

Police say Chandler was a suspect in the robbery of a livery driver that happened a few days ago.

In the incident broadcasted on Facebook Live, Chandler tells viewers the police are at his door and he doesn't want to go back to jail.

He allegedly asks viewers if he should go out of the window before he falls to his death.

The video was removed from Facebook.
