Police say the Chihuahua died during the attack. 

Police observed the dogs becoming aggressive with passersby and fired two shots at the dogs. One of the dogs was injured.

The owner of the pit bulls surrendered both dogs to the Harrisburg Animal Control Officer and both dogs were euthanized.

Charges against the owner are pending. Police say no one was injured.
