Killeen toddler dies after dog attack

WACO -

Killeen Police are investigating after a toddler is killed by a dog on Saturday evening.

At 4:57 p.m., officers responded to a shots fired call in the 4100 block of Pennington Drive.  While en route, they were told a dog had attacked several children.

They arrived to find a 2-year-old boy suffering from dog bites and an 8-year-old girl with less severe injuries.

Both children were rushed to Carl R Darnall Army Medical Center.  At 5:30 p.m., the toddler succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

As of 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, the girl remained in stable condition in the hospital.

Witnesses say the two children and an 18-year-old man were walking home from a playground when a Bull Mastiff ran out from a garage and attacked them.

The dog dragged the 2-year-old down the roadway.   That's when someone fired a gun, causing the animal to run away.

Killeen Animal Control took the dog while they investigate the case.
