— A 2-year-old boy who wandered away from his babysitter’s house and into range of a chained pit bull has died after the dog attacked him.

Matthew Clayton Hurt was pronounced dead Wednesday at a hospital in Texarkana after he was taken there following the attack that morning.

The child had walked down a busy street to the house where the pit bulldog was chained and inside a dog house.

Police Chief Brian Russell said the dog was taken to a kennel in Nashville, Ark., for observation. Russell said he had asked the State Police to investigate.
