A man is dead after being shot by police in a small Norwich park Sunday night.

He reportedly was waving a gun around at the park on the corner of Center Street at Laurel Hill Avenue and when police told the despondent man to drop the weapon, he did not follow orders so after a while police shot him and he later died at William H. Backus Hospital.

The victim has not been identified and because were involved in the shooting, state police have taken over the investigation.
