5:07 p.m. Police Chief John Farmer was dispatched to a residence on N. Winnsboro Street where a 13- year-old male had been attacked by the family’s pit bull. The male had lacerations to his left hand and both legs. The boy’s mother advised that there were no signs the dog was going to attack. Given the severity of the bites, the dog’s owner had the dog euthanized and sent for rabies testing.
