A woman was mauled and killed by a pit bull,  according to Oklahoma City Police.

Nellie Davis, 60, was found by her granddaughter on Wednesday around 11:30 p.m.

Police officers responded to a possible domestic call at the Highland Apartments located in the 12700 block of North Penn, where they soon discovered what happened.

Police said the granddaughter returned home and found her grandmother had been killed by one of their two large pit bull dogs.

Police said officers attempted to contain the animal in a large plastic animal crate, where it was housed prior to the attack. The dog had broken the crate lock and attacked Davis. An officer was forced to shoot the dog when it continued to attack and all attempts to contain it failed.

Homicide detectives are investigating the victim's death while patrol supervisors investigate the shooting of the dog.
