A 71-year-old Texas resident lost his life after a pack of seven pit bulls mauled him while he was going to a nearby shop.

Police have captured all the dogs that attacked the man and are now looking for the canines' owners.

The elderly victim, identified as Freddy Garcia, lived in a garage apartment in Ford Bend County with his brother. The dogs attacked him while he was walking to a convenience store Monday afternoon. Authorities said it was an unprovoked attack and that Garcia didn't have anything in his hand that could attract the dogs.

Following the attack, Garcia was rushed to a hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries, Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Deputies rushed to the spot after a passerby who witnessed the incident dialed 911. The surrounding area was placed on high alert, ABC 13 reported.

The man's brother, Jorge, told Houston Chronicle that pit bulls often roam around in the area. The owners, if found, could face criminal charges.

"If you have a dangerous dog, it is your responsibility to keep that dog secured to keep members of our community safe," Fort Bend County District Attorney Brian Middleton said, according to KHOU 11. "If you fail to do that, you will be held accountable."

Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan described the attack as "vicious."

"This gentleman did nothing to provoke these animals," he said at a press conference Tuesday. "It was uncalled for."

He urged people to be vigilant while stepping out and keep a check on their children.

"We want everyone to remain vigilant when outdoors," Fagan said. "Be sure to keep a close eye on your children and your pets."

The incident follows another dog attack that happened Friday in the Fresno area, about 20 miles southwest of downtown Houston. The attack was non-fatal. Deputies believe the same pack of dogs was involved in both incidents.
