PINE ISLAND (AP) - A 10-year-old boy suffered serious injuries while trying to break up a dog fight at his home in Pine Island.

When sheriff's deputies from Goodhue County arrived at the house Tuesday, they tried using water to separate the pit bulls. But, when that didn't work a stun gun was used on the more aggressive dog, which died shortly after it was shocked.

First responders treated the boy and he was later taken to the hospital by his mother for further treatment.
