Texas Boy Killed By Dog

An eleven-year-old boy has died after being bitten by his family's pit bull in their own home in Killeen, Texas.  Killeen police say the dog jumped down from the couch and went for Seth Lovitt when the boy was chasing his little brother Tuesday night.

The dog knocked Seth to the ground and bit him on the neck. The victim's mother and grandmother restrained the dog and called 9-1-1. The boy was pronounced dead about two hours later at a local military hospital.

The dog has been quarantined.
