Dog Attacks Boy

A 12-year-old Tri-State boy was rushed to the hospital Wednesday night, after a dog attacked him outside his home.

Witnesses say Brock Mead and a friend were playing outside, when two dogs showed up outside their Crescent Springs apartment complex. At first the dogs, which animal control says could be pit bulls, just barked. But within minutes they cornered the boys up against a wall. One of the dogs lunged at Brock and started biting his leg. He was able to break free and go inside his home, but had to be taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital. Brock's family says he should be ok.

When police got to the scene, the dogs were there, and one apparently lunged at the officer. He shot the dog, apparently a stray, but the other one ran off. Late Wednesday night that dog still had not been found.
