Authorities search for pit bulls in jogger death

PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) - Animal control authorities say a helicopter is being used to search for four pit bulls suspected of killing a 63-year-old jogger in rural Los Angeles County.

Spokeswoman Evelina Villa says the woman died of her wounds Thursday morning while she was in an ambulance on the way to a hospital near the high desert community of Littlerock.

Sheriff's officials have issued alerts to people in the area about 65 miles northeast of Los Angeles to be on the lookout for four tan-colored dogs.

Meanwhile, the woman's death is under investigation.
