Authorities say a toddler has died after she was mauled by a dog at a relative’s home.

The mauling occurred shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday in Akron.

Authorities say a man and a woman became involved in an altercation at the home, and at least one of two dogs there became agitated as the dispute continued.

The dog, a pit bull, then mauled the 16-month-old girl. The child was taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead there a short time later.

The girl’s name has not been released, and authorities say she didn’t live in the home.

No other injuries were reported in the incident, which remains under investigation.
