According to police, the owner of the dog faces criminal liability.

The incident occurred around 13:45 local time in a residential area of ​​San Antonio.

An 81-year-old man and a 74-year-old woman who were visiting friends in the area were attacked by two dogs from a neighbor's house after getting out of their car, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

According to San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood, the couple were injured in the attack and taken to a local hospital. The man died from his injuries, and the woman is still in critical condition.

According to authorities, their relative was also bitten on the arm by the dog, and the fire captain was bitten on the leg. The victims were taken to the hospital and remain under medical supervision.

According to Hood, when the rescuers arrived, the dogs actively attacked the couple, who fought off the animals with picks and pipe poles.

“A terrible scene — terrible for the people who lived through it, and, again, terrible for our rescuers who became part of it,” Hood said.

Christian Alexander Moreno, 31, was later arrested in connection with the attack and charged with assault by a dangerous dog resulting in death and with a charge of bodily harm to an elderly person.

According to Shannon Sims, director of the San Antonio Animal Services, two dogs suspected of being involved in the attack and a third from the same home that was not tethered and off the property have been taken into custody.

The three dogs, American Staffordshire Terriers, were euthanized on the evening of February 24, authorities said.

Over the past two years, police have come to the house several times to respond to calls, including other cases of bites, officials said.

Authorities said at least two dogs involved in the fatal attack were involved in biting incidents that resulted in moderate to minor injuries in September 2021 and January 2023. The dogs passed the required quarantine, and the persons involved refused to apply for the recognition of dogs as dangerous.

In November 2022, police also responded to a dog-related call during which an officer told the owner that the dogs should be kept in the yard.

Neighbors called the animal shelter, among other things, to report badly cared for dogs, Sims said.
