GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -

A 2 1/2-year-old boy was killed and a babysitter was injured when they were caught in the middle of a dog attack Sunday morning, Gilbert police said.

"This morning, we had a terrible tragic accident here at this home in Gilbert," said Sgt. Jesse Sanger with Gilbert police.

The boy died at the hospital. The caregiver, identified by Gilbert police as Lara Czerniski, suffered lacerations to her legs and feet.

"Three of her dogs that she owns got into some type of a fight between the dogs. She tried to break them up. She sustained some serious injuries. And also a 2 1/2-year-old boy that was in the house was also injured. He was transported right here next door to Gilbert Mercy Hospital where, unfortunately, he was pronounced deceased," Sanger said. 

The 28-year-old babysitter was watching five children when the attack happened about 11:30 a.m. at her home in the area of Val Vista and Melrose.

The other children were not harmed. They included two 9-year-old boys and two girls, ages 6 and 7.

The dogs, two female and two male pit bull mixes, were impounded and under rabies quarantine for 10 days, said Melissa Gable of Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.

Gable said there was no history of past complaints about the dogs, but there was no history of them being licensed in the county.

She said their investigation would continue before making a decision on the fate of the dogs.
