Lafayette, IN – A one-month old baby is dead after being mauled by a family pit bull-mix, Lafayette police said Monday. The attack occurred at 1901 Greenbush Street at about 11:30 am Saturday. Police were dispatched to the residence after the infant’s teenage brother called 911. The pit bull-mix had been “fighting” with a beagle-mix in the home prior to attacking and killing the infant, police said. – DogsBite.org

The first officer to arrive at the home found the pit-mix dog standing over the severely injured infant. “He could see that the baby had some pretty severe injuries and he believed the infant needed immediate lifesaving aid,” Gard said. “Unfortunately, in order to render aid to the infant, the officer did fire his handgun one time, striking the dog, killing it.” Julian was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. – WTHR
