The dog that killed a 6-year old boy in Union City earlier this week has been euthanized.

The pit-bull mix was quarantined at an animal shelter in Fremont before it was put down Tuesday.

The family says the dog's owner agreed to it. He's the boy's uncle and also a San Mateo police officer.

Six-year-old Nephi Selu died a few hours after he apparently tried to climb on the dog and it turned, and bit him in the head.
