DETROIT – ClickOnDetroit Morning Briefing -- Aug. 20, 2019
Investigators say three pit bull dogs escaped from a yard off Central Avenue and Smart Street and attacked the 9-year-old girl in the alleyway. Two people nearby saw the attack and rushed to save the girl.
They loaded up bags full with guns and then tried to get out. However, they tripped a silent alarm, trapping them inside. The police arrived pretty quickly to meet them right when they were about to get out of the building.
There is the possibility that a few of those storms could become strong-to-severe (the farther south you are, the higher the risk), with 60 mph wind gusts being the primary severe threat.
