(WBEN) - Niagara Falls police are investigating the death of a man they encountered while heading to a robbery investigation.

A person had called 911 saying he and a friend were the victims of an armed robbery. When they arrived to 617 Pine Avenue, a person in the door-way was in some type of distress and an ambulance was called. The man died before the ambulance could arrive.

Police do not believe the man who died had any connection to the robbery they were there to investigate, other than living in the same building as the complainants.  

The deceased man's identity is not being released at this time pending notification of family.

An autopsy will be performed this morning to determine the cause of death.
