St. Paul police shot and killed two pit bulls Sunday after the loose dogs bit two people, the Star Tribune said.
The two victims were taken to Regions Hospital and suffered non-life threatening injuries, one a leg puncture wound and the other a significant foot wound, Pioneer Press said.
Around 6:00 p.m., the Pioneer Press said police recieved reports about dog bites in the 200 block of Stinson Street and the 300 block of Burgess Street.
Officers tried to contain the dogs but were forced to shoot when the dogs became more aggressive and posed a threat to bystanders, the Star Tribune reported.
The owner of the pit bulls has been identified and reports were still being compiled as of Sunday evening, the Pioneer Press said.
