KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — A Jamaican toddler has been fatally mauled by a neighbor's pit bull.

Police announced in a Wednesday statement that 2-year-old Ronica Gregory and her older sister were attacked by a dog as they walked through their neighborhood in the eastern parish of St. Catherine.

Both girls sustained injuries in the attack and were rushed to a hospital, where Ronica was pronounced dead.

Her sister's status was not immediately clear. It's also unclear whether authorities have captured the pit bull or if the owner's will face criminal charges.

Police say they're investigating the fatal dog attack.
