While Medics were attending to the victims, the two Pit Bulls returned and attacked a Deputy. The Deputy shot both dogs in defense of himself and others present. Both dogs were hit and ran to a nearby home, where it is believed the animals live. The Deputy followed the dogs and had to put them down as they remained aggressive and could not be secured.
The incident is still under investigation and the case has been referred to the Prosecutor's Office for review of criminal charges against the dogs owner.
