Our hearts are heavy today as this is a sad day for this family and our entire community. On March 23rd, 2017 at approximately 1:03 p.m. Calvert County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Prancer Court in Lusby for a report of a dog attack. Deputies arrived within one minute of the initial call. Deputies learned that a family friend was watching an 8 month old baby boy when the family dog attacked the baby. Deputies observed the dog actively attacking the baby and had to shoot the animal in order to stop the attack. Deputies immediately determined the baby was deceased from the attack.
As the investigation is ongoing, Sheriff Mike Evans will be conducting a press conference at the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office at 12:-00 p.m. on March 24th, 2017.
