A 7-month-old boy is dead and his grandmother is hospitalized after the woman's two dogs attacked the child Tuesday morning at her home just west of downtown San Antonio.
Police Chief Bill McManus said the woman was about to feed her grandson about 7 a.m. and went to her kitchen for his bottle. She returned to find the two pit bulls attacking the baby.
The woman got a knife and stabbed one of the dogs, got the child away from them and back into his crib.
Then, the dogs attacked her. McManus said she got the dogs into her backyard, where police shot both dead when they arrived.
The child was died at University Hospital, where police said the woman also was admitted and is expected to recover.
No identities nor charges have been revealed.
