Dog Attacks, Kills 7-month-old Baby In Dayton

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A dog has attacked and killed a 7-month-old baby in Dayton.

Police tell The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1zVuNQk) that a step-grandmother was watching the baby for the day when her dog attacked and killed the infant on Sunday.

A Montgomery County coroner’s investigator says the baby is from another state.

The baby’s name hasn’t been released pending family notification.

An animal control officer removed the dog.

Montgomery County records show an American Staffordshire terrier is registered at the address where the baby was killed.

A June 3 police report shows the same dog attacked and injured another dog before it got away.

A dozen people who gathered at the home after the attack cried and screamed. Police say the step-grandmother was so distraught she couldn’t walk on her own.
