A man died at Waterbury Hospital Monday after arriving at Waterbury Hospital with gunshot wounds.
Police said the victim was dropped off by a private vehicle at the entrance around 3:24 p.m., but the driver left before officers arrived.
Just before, at 3:13 p.m., officers were dispatched to a report of gunfire in the area of Arch Street. Responding officers found a dog that had been shot in the face. That dog was taken to Mattatuck Animal Hospital for treatment.
Both incidents are under investigation and it was not immediately clear if they are related.
