Suburban Chicago man dies after pit bull attack

PLAINFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Authorities in the suburban Chicago community of Plainfield say a local man died two days after he was mauled by a pit bull over the weekend.

According to the Chicago Tribune, 25-year-old Devin White of Plainfield was visiting another home in the community when the animal attacked him and three other people.

White was taken to a nearby hospital before he was transferred to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead Monday night.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday but a police detective says White died "as a result of injuries sustained due to the dog bite."
