Saylor managed to fight the dogs off with the help of his brother, who lived nearby. Once he was free, Johnny Saylor ran inside and grabbed a .22 caliber pistol. When he came back outside, the pit bulls attacked once more. Saylor shot one of the dogs and it ran away. He then hurried to his wife, who was lying motionless on the ground.

It was too late. Lorraine Saylor was killed when the pit bulls attacked her. The second dog was still standing nearby as Johnny Saylor checked on his wife. Saylor feared for his own life, so he shot the dog and killed it. Saylor also sustained injuries to his arm, hand, and head.

The pit bulls belonged to one of Saylor’s neighbors, Johnny Dale Lankford. Lankford was being held in a local detention center when the pit bulls attacked. He was already being charged with second-degree assault, domestic violence, and unlawful imprisonment. After the attack, he now faces another charge of harboring a dangerous animal.
