TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Two pit bulls suspected of attacking a woman in Tacoma have been detained.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1E6j29K ) that Tacoma animal control officers detained the dogs Monday night. The dogs will be quarantined for several days to ensure they don’t present any dangers to public health.

Puyallup Tribal police says the two pit bulls attacked a woman in the parking lot of a smoke shop on Friday. Workers tried to intervene, and one had fired gunshots, causing the dogs to flee.

The woman was taken to a hospital.

Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool says the dogs won’t be released until the case is decided upon by a court. The owner has not been arrested.
