DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say a 2-month-old boy has died after being attacked by his family's pet pit bull at their home.

Police say the baby was attacked Sunday while in a bouncing seat. Police say the child's father had gone outside to turn on a sprinkler system and when he returned, the dog was attacking the child.

As the father tried to stop the attack, the mother walked in. She was bitten twice by the dog.

Police say the father was able to grab the dog by the neck, then took the dog outside and shot it twice.

The baby was identified by the Dallas County medical examiner's office as Brayden Wilson.

Police say the case will be referred to a grand jury to determine whether any charges will be filed.
