2-year-old boy killed by family pit bull in San Bernardino

Police say a 2-year-old boy has died after his family's pit bull mauled him in San Bernardino.

Sgt. Travis Walker says the boy died early Friday morning after being attacked the night before at the family's home.

The child, whose name has not been released, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center with head injuries after the attack. No one else was hurt.

Walker says the family had more than one dog, but only one was involved in the attack.

He says animal control officers took custody of the pit bull.

Walker says investigators reported that it appeared to be an unfortunate and tragic accident.
