A 7-year-old boy is dead after getting attacked by two pit bulls in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The incident happened 6 p.m. Saturday night at a Clare Street residence.
Police say the boy entered a fenced-in area where the two pit bulls were, and that's when he was attacked.
One of the pit bulls escaped but was eventually found and euthanized.
The other is in the custody of animal control.
A neighbor who saw the boy's mother right after the attack told NBC Boston that she was in shock, trying to wake up from this nightmare.
Police have not released the boy's name and are calling this an on-going investigation.
