As a result, police at the scene did not know the woman's condition, but onlookers and neighbors who tried to help fend off the dogs said she was covered in blood, with bites to her head, face, arms and legs.
Officials were still investigating how the dogs made their way to the sidewalk and exactly what provoked the attack in the 2200 block of South Brazos Street.
The dog, shot by the first responding officer, apparently carried itself about a half block, leaving behind a trail of blood, before plopping in the middle of the street.
The second dog, a fawn female pit bull, was taken by ACS, where it's future will be determined by officials, Norwood said.
He said his father has had problems with the dogs in the past.
The owner had not been located as of Thursday afternoon, and police could not say if he would face charges.
The measures, which increase criminal penalties for owners of such dogs, were prompted after a spate of high profile dog attacks across the state, including the death of a 10-year-old San Antonio girl who was mauled by a pit bull in 2007.
