LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 7-year-old boy was injured when he was attacked by a pit bull outside his family’s Las Vegas home.

Police say the boy was rushed to University Medical Center with a severe leg injury after the attack Friday night in the northeast part of the Las Vegas Valley.

Police say the injury is not considered life-threatening but it may require surgery.

Police say someone shot the dog twice but the animal survived. Investigators believe the dog either belonged to the family or a friend of the family.

The dog was taken from the scene by Animal Control officers.
