BURLESON, Texas (AP) — A 3-month-old North Texas boy has died after being mauled by a family dog as police investigated a domestic disturbance.
The Tarrant County medical examiner's office identified the victim Tuesday as Rayden Bruce of Burleson. Officials say the attack happened Monday night and the boy died at a Fort Worth hospital.
Kim Peckler of Burleson's Animal Services says the dog, a 4-year-old pit bull mix named Brody, was euthanized Tuesday morning at the owner's request.
Burleson police Cmdr. Cindy Aaron says officers answered a disturbance call at the residence. The dog attacked the baby as officers spoke with family members.
Police did not immediately provide further details Tuesday. Further information on the dog wasn't immediately released.
Burleson is 10 miles south of Fort Worth.
