Boy fatally attacked by two pit bulls

RIVERVIEW, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Two dogs fatally attacked a 4-year-old boy Saturday night in Riverview, according to Hillsborough deputies.

It happened just after 10:30 when 4 year old Logan Shepard was found in the front yard of a family member's home along Rhodine Road with two pit bulls standing over him, deputies said.

Two Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office deputies were approximately 100 yards away at the time conducting an unrelated traffic stop. Upon hearing the screams, sheriff's officials say the two deputies ran to the residence but unfortunately, Logan was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Animal control took the dogs away.

There are no charges at this time.
