A dog attacked and killed a 7-month-old boy being watched for the day by his step-grandmother in Ohio.
Police told The Dayton Daily News
that the baby was attacked and killed Sunday afternoon and that officers responded to the scene after a neighbor called 911 to get help.
"She just knocked on my door, bangin' on my door, She had a baby in her hand. The baby's not breathing. You need to get here now," the neighbor told the dispatcher.

A Montgomery County coroner's investigator said the baby, whose name hasn't been released, is from another state, reported The Associated Press.
An autopsy was planned for Monday.
An animal control officer removed the dog.
Montgomery County records show an American Staffordshire terrier, which resembles a pit bull, is registered at the address where the baby was killed.
A June 3 police report shows the same dog attacked and injured another dog before it got away.
People who gathered at the home after the attack cried and screamed. Police say the step-grandmother was extremely distraught.
