CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - Authorities searching for a pit bull that attacked and injured two children and an adult in Culpeper County have captured and put down the animal.

Sheriff’s deputies tell media outlets the dog was captured Monday afternoon.

Sheriff Scott Jenkins said the brownish-red dog attacked its owners, a 52-year-old woman and a 6-year-old girl, around 4 p.m. Sunday. A 6-year-old boy in the neighborhood was attacked about an hour later.

Jenkins says a neighbor shot and wounded the dog after the boy was attacked.

He says the girl received facial injuries and the woman was bitten on both legs and her right arm. The boy suffered foot injuries. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
