Texas infant killed in dog attack

MAGNOLIA, Texas (AP) - A 1-year-old boy has been killed by his family's pit bull at his grandparents' home about 50 miles northwest of Houston.

Montgomery County Sheriff's Lt. Dan Norris says in a prepared statement that the boy was mauled Saturday night inside the home. When a deputy responded around 8 p.m. the dog lunged and the deputy shot the dog. No information was available about the condition of the dog.

The boy was home with his 45-year-old grandmother at the time. She was not injured. The boy and his mother had recently moved in with the grandparents. Authorities had not released any identities.
