CHICAGO (AP) _ Police say a 5-year-old boy has been killed by a dog in Chicago.
According to police, the boy was mauled by the dog Monday night on the city’s South Side. The boy was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Neighbors tell WLS-TV that people hit the dog with rocks and other objects, killing it and freeing the boy. Marquis Lewis says he didn’t realize at first that the boy was being mauled.
