West St. Paul man who died after fall is identified

A man who jumped to his death off of a downtown overpass after a foot chase with Minneapolis police has been identified as Jason Yang, 29, of St. Paul, according to the Pioneer Press.

Yang died after police were called to Epic nightclub early Saturday because a fight had broken out. Yang, who police believed started the fight, ran away from the police, leaping over a concrete barrier on Interstate 394 off-ramp and falling several stories to a parking lot, according to the Star Tribune.

Police believe Yang was trying to escape the police, but misjudged the distance to the parking lot, according to the Star Tribune.
