Chino pit bulls injure two people, kill dog

Ernie Vicario, 61, wipes away tears when talking about his companion of 10 years, a little terrier named Romeo, who was attacked and killed by two pit bulls while Mr. Vicario was walking him in the stroller on 14th Street (shown behind him). He is holding the cane he used on the dogs. 

Two pit bulls that got loose from a home on 14th Street in Chino attacked a man, killed a small terrier dog, and injured an Inland Valley Humane Society officer before being shot by officers from the Chino Police Department on Thursday, June 16. 

Lt. Nick Marotta said the dogs were shot on 11th Street after they began attacking the Humane Society officer who was trying to secure them.
