FLORISSANT — Authorities in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant say a pack of dogs is responsible for attacking several people.

The incident happened Tuesday when four dogs ran out of a home and first attacked two elderly women who were walking, causing serious injuries to one of the women.

The dogs went to a road, where one of them was fatally struck by a vehicle. The other three dogs then attacked another woman, her dog and a neighbor who tried to intervene.

The dogs were eventually taken into custody by St. Louis County Animal Control.

Police say the attacks resulted in two people being hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
