Later, a Chicago police sergeant was flagged down by neighbors who pointed out  the pit bull attacking a school boy as he got off a school bus.  The sergeant got the pit bull away from the boy and fatally shot the pit bull.

Tyrell Henry, the 16 year old boy who was attacked, said in a police report, "Thank God for that officer.  That dog would have killed me."

Henry was taken to the hospital, treated and released.
