BENNINGTON, Okla. (AP) – Police say a southern Oklahoma man has died after being attacked by three dogs, including two pit bulls and a mixed breed.

Bennington Police Chief James Heil said Alan Bruce died Monday at a hospital where he was taken following the attack two days earlier in the town about 130 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.

Heil said when he and other officers arrived, the dogs came after them. Heil shot and killed one pit bull. The dog’s owner has been ordered to quarantine the other two dogs while police investigate. Heil says the district attorney will decide whether the owner will face charges.

Heil says the dogs previously attacked a young girl and a teenage boy, both of whom are recovering. Heil didn’t immediately return a call for additional comment Wednesday.
