Pit bull shot by police after 2 bitten in South Shore

March 1, 2014 (CHICAGO)

Officers were called to the corner of East 69th Street and South South Shore Avenue around 9 a.m. for a loose pit bull in the area, police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said.

The "charging pit bull" bit a 17-year-old boy and a man--whose age was not immediately known-- before an officer shot the dog, Sedevic said. Both the boy and man were in good condition at South Shore Hospital, Sedevic added.

The city's Department of Animal Control and Care recovered the dog, but its condition was still unknown late Saturday morning, Sedevic said.
