One person is dead following a DEA raid in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx Wednesday afternoon. Federal agents responded to an apartment building at 2065 Story Avenue to executive a raid sometime after 3 p.m.

One person, believed to be a suspect attempting to flee, fell from the ninth floor to the sixth floor. That person was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other people were taken from the scene on stretchers to Jacobi Medical Center.

DEA agents were witnessed banging on doors. Sources say the incident started as a heroin lab bust.

Eleven other people were arrested from the scene.
