Family members called police reporting that Daniel assaulted people at the home, chased a neighbor and started barking and growling, NBC reported.

Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton told KWTX News that Daniel then took a medium-sized black dog onto the front porch of the home, beat and strangled the animal and then “began to bite into the dog, ripping pieces of flesh away."
