JOHNSTON CITY, Ill. (AP) -- Investigators in southern Illinois say a weekend dog attack killed a 3-year-old boy.

Williamson County authorities say Gabrial Mandrell was attacked by at least one of his family's three dogs Saturday night at their home near Johnston City. He was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

Investigators say the boy pushed out the screen in a bedroom window and crawled outside before being attacked by a dog while the family thought he was sleeping.

The family's three mixed-breed dogs are being held by animal control officials.

An autopsy concluded that the boy died from blood loss from multiple dog bites.

The comments that people are making is horrible.

Pits were already mentioned in the comment section on the link, even though the article clearly states mixed breed, it says nothing about what they are mixed with. That is what the media has done to certain breeds.

My heart goes out to this family.
