An Edgemere woman was attacked by at least one of her two pit bulls and seriously injured Friday afternoon, Baltimore County police said.

The dogs, one white and the other brown, were loose for several hours after the attack, which occurred shortly before 2:45 p.m. in the 7600 block of North Point Road, police said.

The white dog was located in the 8200 block of North Point Road about five hours after the attack and, because it was behaving aggressively, police said officers shot and killed it. A short time later, the brown dog was found and taken into custody by Baltimore County Animal Care and Control, which is holding it pending further investigation.

The woman was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment, police said.
