Washington state child killed by family’s dog on Halloween night in ‘tragic accident’: police

A young child was killed from a vicious dog attack from the family’s pet on Halloween night, Washington state police said.

In a press release, the Spokane Police Department said that officers were notified of an animal attack in a north Spokane home at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

When officers arrived, they discovered that a young boy had been attacked by the family’s dog. Authorities did not identify the age of the boy or the dog’s breed.

Despite first responders attempts, police said, that the boy “succumbed to their injuries.”

“It’s hard to even know that, you know, I’ll never be seeing him outside again. I’ll never, you know, hear him laugh. Nothing,” Sandy said.
