Henrico County Police Sergeant Mike Palkovics said that the boy, Matthew Logan Johnson, was apparently attacked by one of six rottweilers found at a home in the suburbs of Richmond.
The child, known as Logan, was pronounced dead at VCU Medical Center. An autopsy has been scheduled.
Palkovics said an adult was in the house with most of the dogs at the time of the attack at about 5pm yesterday. At this time the relationship of the adult to the child is unknown.
The adult found the boy with at least one of the dogs in the back yard. Animal Control officers have seized all six dogs. A criminal investigation is on the way.
