A nearly 15-hour standoff ended early Tuesday morning when a robbery suspect who climbed atop a construction crane on the campus of Southern Methodist University fell 150 feet to his death, a school official said.

The suspect fell after Dallas police sent four officers up the crane to try and remove him, according to Patti LaSalle, a SMU associate vice president of public affairs.
