The dogs continued to act aggressively even as staff and responders tried to jump in and help Villafane, according to police.

“Due to the dogs’ continued aggression, an officer discharged his duty weapon striking and killing both dogs,” police said.

Villafane was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries but ultimately did not survive, police said.
