KILLEEN, TX — A dog was killed and three children were taken to the hospital after the dog reportedly attacked the kids in Killeen on Wednesday.
KPD says the incident happened around 6 p.m. in the 5600 block of Elk Ridge Court. Three were playing when a dog got out of his yard and came and dragged a 6-year-old girl by the leg. A five-year-old and a 13-year-old child were also attacked. Officers had to shoot and kill the dog to get it to stop going after the kids.
Two of the children were treated and released. The six-year-old girl remains in the hospital.
The owners of the dog were ticketed for not showing rabies paperwork. The dog's body has been sent off for rabies testing.
