Det. Eugenio Gonzalez says officers went to the residence around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, after a neighbor reported hearing someone screaming for help.

Gonzalez says police broke down the apartment door and found the dogs mauling a 10-year-old child. The youth was taken a hospital and was listed in critical condition.

One of the pit bulls was critically injured in the shooting. Details on the other dog’s condition were not immediately available.
