LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Police say three people have been hospitalized and a dog has been killed following a chaotic scene at a Pennsylvania home.
Authorities say the violence began Tuesday afternoon when a man entered a home in Lancaster with a sawed-off shotgun to confront his brother.
Police say a struggle ensued between the two brothers, and the victim’s wife joined in the struggle by striking the suspect in the back of his head with a small machete.
The couple’s dog broke loose during the fight and began biting all three of them. Officers arriving at the scene found everyone in a pile with the dog still biting them.
