Victim identified in fatal dog attack
JESSIEVILLE, Ark.– We’re learning more information about the little boy who lost his life during a dog attack.
Authorities say 5-year-old Ayden Evans and his younger sister survived the May 20 tornado but their house did not.
The siblings went to stay with a family friend in Arkansas while their parents began the process of rebuilding.
Officials say Ayden had been upset by something and was crying just before a bull mastiff attacked him.
Experts believe the dog may have taken the boy’s crying as a sign of aggression and lashed out at the child.
The dog ran away after the attack but deputies found it a short time later and put it down.
Ayden later died of his injuries.
