A 58-year-old male who was suspected of being a victim of a dog attack 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 at approximately 10 p.m. on Thursday night at a residence on 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.
