Police shot and killed two pit pulls that were running loose after one dog attacked a Jack Russell terrier near an elementary school in Highland Park.

Mayor Stephen Nolan told The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick officers opened fire Wednesday because the one pit bull wouldn't release the smaller dog and the other made a threatening move toward the police.

No people were attacked or injured.

Town officials are investigating to determine whether to bring charges against the owner of the pit bulls.
