The Metropolitan Special Crimes Unit is conducting a death investigation following a Tuesday morning North Lubbock dog attack, the release states.

At 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 27, the LPD Communications Center received a call for service to the 2500 block Cesar Chavez Drive following reports of "aggressive dogs in the area" of the Buddy Holly Recreational Area. One caller reported a "woman had been injured after several dogs attacked her" and stated there was a "dead body nearby," according to the release. At the time, it was unknown if the two events were related.

Responding officers located one woman with "moderate injuries received from several dog bites" and discovered 64-year-old Jack Looney nearby, the release said, with EMS pronouncing Looney deceased on the scene. "Preliminary information" lead investigators to believe that Mr. Looney is also the "victim of a dog attack and died as a result of the injuries he sustained."

The City of Lubbock Animal Control Department captured one of the dogs "believed to be involved in both attacks," with the organization capturing the two other dogs believed to have been involved late Tuesday night, the release said, adding that the case remains under investigation.
