Authorities say they were forced to shoot at two dogs to stop them from attacking a Clinton man.

Clinton police say the pit bulls attacked 31-year-old Benjamin Nave Tuesday night. Nave was taken to an Iowa City hospital for treatment. His condition is unknown.

The Clinton Herald reports the first officer at the scene had to shoot at the dogs to stop the attack. Both dogs fled and one was located a short time later.
