Pit bull attack 911 call released
Police released the chilling 911 call Thursday from a pit bull attack at a Hoboken apartment building that left three people seriously wounded.
The attack took place Feb. 4, and the 911 call was placed by a security guard at the apartment building. The guard explained to the dispatcher that two pit bulls were on the loose and one man was bit in the leg. He also told the dispatcher that he could not send paramedics into the building because it was not safe. Police said a woman and her friend tried to calm one of the dogs down but ended up getting injured also. Both women had to be pulled from a window to safety.
In the end, a Hoboken police officer shot and killed one of the dogs. The other later died after being tranquilized. The officer was placed on routine leave until the prosecutor's office deems the shooting "justified."
