Pitbull shot after attacking child, adult

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA - Erie police have shot and killed a pit bull that attacked its owner and a 10-year-old boy at a home in the 1000 block of East Ninth Street.

Both victims were taken to Hamot Medical Center. The 10-year-old had bite wounds to his back and legs. The dog’s owner had bites to both of his arms, on an ear, and on a leg. Their names were not available.

When police arrived on scene at 1:45 p.m. the dog was in the backyard of the home at 1043 E. Ninth St., said Erie animal enforcement officer Rob Culbertson. He said officers determined it was necessary to shoot the 60-pound dog because it was continuing to be aggressive and the backyard gate was unlatched, worrying police the dog could escape and charge a crowd that was gathering in the street.
