HOUMA, LA (WAFB) -
Authorities said a child is dead and her mother is in the hospital after their dog attacked them Tuesday.

A four-year-old girl died Tuesday night after she was attacked by a dog named Niko, according to the Houma Police Department.

The attack happened around 7 p.m. at a residence in the Highland Apartment Complex. The girl has been identified as Mia DeRouen.

Police say the 2-year-old, 130-pound dog attacked DeRouen inside an apartment. When her mother, 27-year-old Megan Touchet fought the dog off her child, the dog attacked her, too.

Touchet was able to get away from the animal and barricade herself in a bedroom where she screamed for help. She was able to hand over the little girl through a window to medical personnel. Touchet suffered moderate injuries and was released from the hospital.

Mia received facial and head injuries in the attack and was taken to Terrebonne General Medical Center, where she died. She would have celebrated her fifth birthday next week.

Officers on scene say the dog was running loose inside the apartment and acting in a vicious manner. Officers fired at least 10 shots at the animal, killing it.

Animal control officers removed a second dog, a female, from the residence. A police spokesperson said there are no indications that Niko was being abused or used for fighting. The female is currently being held at the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter and officers suspect she may be in heat.

Officers counselors will be available for the officers who responded to the scene, describing it as "horrific."
