Irving, TX – Early Saturday morning, three pit bulls secured in their fenced-in yard brutally attacked a teenager. Irving police received reports of the attack about 4:45 am in the 800 block of East Third Street. Arriving officers jumped the fence and tried to stop the vicious attack by placing themselves between the teenager and the dogs, firing on the pit bulls in the process. One pit bull was shot in the jaw. The victims was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital with critical injuries. – DogsBite.org

A dog that was shot by responding police had to be euthanized due to the severity of its injuries, police said. Two other dogs are still at the Irving Animal Shelter.
