Two women were admitted into a local area hospital Tuesday morning after being attacked by a pit bull in north Tulsa.

Just before 10:30 a.m. Tulsa Police were sent to the area of 2027 N. Lewis Pl. in reference to a woman being attacked by a pit bull. When officers arrived at the scene they found one woman screaming and two "down in the front yard of the residence and a third woman screaming."

According to a release from TPD, Michael Harrell, an employee with Interstate Steel and Metal, told officers when they arrived that he got into his truck and drove to the area where the women were being attacked by the pit bull. He grabbed his .40 caliber pistol, ran to the yard and fired a shot into the dog when it came towards him.

Police at the scene determined that the three women were from a local church and were ministering in the area,  When two of the women went into the yard and knocked on the front door, the homeowner came to the door and the pit bull burst through the door and began to attack the two on the property.

Harrell told Channel 8, "The woman who was on the ground, she still, even after the dog was shot, just did not move. The other woman just crying, and bleeding, and (said) 'help". She was horrible." 

Harrell also says, when he arrived, the owner of the dog had a ball bat and was covered in blood. He thinks she might have been in shock. The woman gave Harrell permission to shoot the dog.

Both women had extensive dog bite wounds to their faces, arms and legs, according to the release. They were transported to an area hospital where they are listed in critical condition.
