(KOKH) -- OKLAHOMA CITY — 12 children were injured Monday afternoon during a dog attack at Fillmore Elementary School in southwest Oklahoma City.
Officials say 28 third and fourth grade students were out on the playground for recess when the pit bull mix came in through an open gate.
"Dog came on and started to attack some of the kids, and of course kids began to scream and panic, which excites the dog and scared the dog even more," said Capt. David Macy with the Oklahoma City Fire Department. "His natural instinct was to keep biting and go after the kids."
