A 58-year-old man who was reportedly attacked by a dog has died.
However, police stress that the man’s cause of death has yet to be determined, considering that emergency personnel were initially responding to a medical call, most often associated with natural causes such as a heart attack.
The incident took place approximately 10 p.m. Thursday night at a home in the 1100 block of Mountain Avenue.
"I can tell you Animal Services was involved and did seize two dogs," a police spokesman said. "What role the animals played is undetermined at this point. Until the autopsy is complete... we don’t know what transpired."
According to a source, the deceased male was looking to purchase a generator at the residence in question, where he may have suffered a medical trauma.
