Police have identified a construction worker who died Tuesday when he fell while measuring for rain gutters on the roof of an apartment building that was under construction.

Larry G. Jones, 67, of Post Falls, was working in Coeur d’Alene as a subcontractor for Copper Basin Construction.

Coeur d’Alene police responded at 3:30 p.m. to the trauma call at North Grand Mill Lane and Seltice Way, the police department said. Witnesses who saw Jones fall said he was not wearing a safety harness. Jones died at the scene.
