CORINNA, Maine (AP) - Officials haven’t yet released new details in a dog attack that left a 7-year-old boy dead.

The Penobscot (peh-NAHB’-skaht) County Sheriff’s Office in Maine said the attack happened Saturday evening in the town of Corinna, about 30 miles west of Bangor.

Sheriffs say they responded to the house around 5:15 p.m. and found the boy dead at the scene.

Authorities have not yet released the boy’s name, breed of the dog involved in the attack or details on if the dog was a pet. No one else was injured.

Officials said Saturday the dog has been impounded and the investigation is continuing.
