Boy Killed in Pit Bull Attack

A boy was fatally mauled in a pit bull attack at his San Francisco (search) home. Police killed one of two dogs in the house, and captured the second.

The attack occurred in the city's Sunset District, about a block from Golden Gate Park (search).

Neighbors said the dogs were pets of the boy's family.

No one has been taken into custody.

San Francisco has seen at least one other fatal dog mauling in recent years, the death of Diane Whipple in 2001. She was killed by two 100-pound-plus Presa Canarios (search) in the hallway outside her Pacific Heights apartment.
