A 2-year-old boy was fatally mauled by several pit bulls late Wednesday afternoon inside a rowhouse in the city’s Port Richmond section, police said.

Around 5:15 p.m., police responded to reports that a child was being attacked by dogs inside a two-story rowhouse in the 3000 block of Agate Street, said Chief Inspector Scott Small.

When the officers arrived, “they could see through the front door … a child being attacked” by pit bulls, Small said.

“The child was bleeding heavily. The child was unresponsive,” he added.

“Some of the dogs charged the officers. The officers fired shots at these dogs that were attacking them,” Small said. Two dogs were killed and one wounded, police said.
