The Lubbock Police Department and Metropolitan Special Crimes Unit were investigating a death scene in the 2500 block of Cesar Chavez Drive Tuesday morning after a caller reported a dog attack and dead body at a nearby park.
According to LPD, a call came in around 7:30 a.m. regarding a woman being attacked by aggressive dogs near the Buddy Holly Recreation Area. Callers also said there was a dead body in the park. Police do not yet know if the two incidents are related.
According to police, the woman suffered moderate injuries from being bitten by the dogs.
Preliminary reports indicate a witness fired several times at the dogs but it is unknown if the dogs were struck. Animal control officers were on the scene looking for the dogs.
Tuesday afternoon, Lubbock police announced that one of the dogs had been captured but that two dogs believed to be involved in the attack were still at large. The suspect canines are described as a black dog and a white dog with black spots and both appear to be of a pit bull-type breed.
If anyone in the area sees these dogs, they are asked to call Animal Control at (806) 775-3357.
This is a developing story and the investigation is ongoing.
