LAWTON, Okla. (AP) – Lawton authorities have identified a 3-year-old boy who died after being attacked by a dog over the weekend.

Lawton police spokesman Capt. Craig Akard says Jordan "Jo Jo" Collins-Tyson died Sunday after a pit bull bit him in the neck.

Akard says officers were called Sunday morning to a home on a report of a dog attack. When they arrived, Akard says the dog was aggressive toward them and had to be shot.

Akard says a friend of Jordan’s family was babysitting the child and called for help after finding him lying in the home’s backyard.
