— A porn actor suspected of killing a colleague died Saturday after falling some 40 feet from a rocky hillside after a standoff with police, officials said.

A “less than lethal munition” was used against Stephen Clancy Hill just before he fell, said police Officer Bruce Borihanh, who had no other details about the weapon that was used.

KABC-TV video of the incident showed Hill moving to the edge of the outcropping from a seated position and then letting himself drop as police closed in on him.

SWAT officers had spent part of Saturday afternoon trying to talk Hill down from the hillside as he clutched a sword. It was unknown whether the sword was the murder weapon in Tuesday’s deadly attack at a DVD production center that also left two people injured.
