A Baltimore police officer shot a pit bull in South Baltimore after the dog attacked and seriously injured two people, police said.
The two people were taken to a hospital for treatment after being attacked by the dog about 11 a.m. in the 600 block of Maude Ave. in the city’s Brooklyn neighborhood, according to detective Nicole Monroe, a police spokeswoman.
“A patrolman shot the dog,” she said. “I don’t know if the dog died as a result.”
The names, ages and conditions of the people who were attacked were not immediately known, Monroe said.
