Waterbury police said Chester Harriot, 47, of Waterbury, died after being shot once in the chest.
According to officials, a group of people, including Harriot, were playing cards when two men entered the building and attempted to rob them.
One of the victims got into a struggle with one of the robbers, and police said that's when Harriot was shot.
