A 27-year-old man apparently jumped to his death Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport in Westchester, according to Los Angeles Airport police.

The apparent suicide occurred about 8:15 p.m. in the Tom Bradley Terminal, according to Airport police Sgt. Rob Pedregon and Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

"It appears the man was on an upper level when he jumped,'' Pedregon said. "He landed on the Customs level, which is one level below. He was dead at the scene.''

The man's name will be withheld pending notification of next of kin.

There is no information currently available regarding why the man may have jumped.
