A U.S. Postal Service carrier who was attacked by five dogs in Putnam County, Florida, has died, a sheriff’s official said.
Pamela Jane Rock, 61, died at a hospital Monday night, the day after the vicious attack, which a neighbor tried to stop by firing into the air, sheriff’s Col. Joseph Wells said Tuesday at a news conference.
“One neighbor brought his firearm along and fired several shots in the air in an attempt to disrupt the attack,” Wells said. “That was unsuccessful.“
Officers applied tourniquets to stem the loss of blood, but during the drive to the hospital, Rock went into cardiac arrest.
Neighbors and the dogs’ owner pulled the animals off Rock after they heard her scream, he said. The animals were seized and will be euthanized. Additional details about the dogs, including size or breed, were not provided.
Rock’s niece told NBC affiliate WTLV of Jacksonville that Rock had recently completed training with the Postal Service and was in a postal vehicle when it broke down Sunday in a neighborhood about 65 miles south of Jacksonville.
She said that her aunt was horrifically wounded and that doctors amputated an arm in their attempt to save her.
Animal control officials had visited the dogs’ home at least twice in the last three years, Wells said.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV/Gray News) – Police in Missouri are investigating a violent crime spree in St. Charles that ended with an armed robber being shot and killed.
The St. Charles Police Department reports the crime spree started during the early morning hours on Saturday at a convenience store where a 26-year-old went into the business with a knife and told the clerk he was robbing her.
Police said the man held the knife to the clerk’s throat while she opened the register. He then pushed the clerk to the floor and stole money from the register. He dragged her toward the back of the store, asking the location of the safe.
According to authorities, the clerk did not have access to the safe, so the thief forced the worker to open a second register before stealing that cash and leaving the scene.
Officials said first responders took the clerk to a hospital for lacerations on her left wrist, right hand and neck.
Police said they were on their way to that scene when reports of another armed robbery came in at a Phillips 66 gas station. Officers said they found broken glass that looked like a burglary had occurred.
St. Charles police said a third burglary call then came in regarding an armed robbery at a QuikTrip convenience store where shots had been fired.
According to police, arriving officers found the 26-year-old suspect shot by a customer during that attempted robbery. First responders took the suspected thief to the hospital, where he later died.
Authorities said they interviewed the customer, a 26-year-old man, who told police he stopped at the gas station to use the restroom and buy something. However, he was walking back to his car from the store when he saw a black SUV drive quickly into the parking lot.
The customer said he saw a man carrying a backpack while running into the store and threatening the clerk with a knife, according to police.
Officials said the 26-year-old customer grabbed his gun and went back into the store. He then confronted the thief, who grabbed for his backpack.
According to authorities, the suspect reportedly told the customer, “I have something for you,” and came around the counter when he was shot and killed by the customer.
Investigators said the customer and the clerk were both uninjured in the incident and the suspect’s car came back as stolen in an armed robbery on Friday, with stolen items also found in the vehicle.

July 13, 2022
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance of a July 7 home invasion showing four men invading and attacking a resident on Pinestead Road.
According to an ECSO Facebook post release, three males approached the front door of the home, and when the victim unlocked the door, two of the three men pushed him into the house and attacked him. The third male then pulled a handgun from his pants and waited outside.
“During this home invasion, the victim’s pistol fell to the ground and was picked up by one of the invaders,” the release notes. “The victim ran to the back room of the house where he had another firearm and began firing at his intruders.”
The three intruders “ran frantically from the home to their vehicle where the fourth suspect was waiting and drove off, hitting a mailbox.”
The release noted that suspect Da’Torrance Hackworth was arrested in connection with the home invasion for use or display of a firearm during a felony, possession of a firearm by a felon, larceny, grand theft of a firearm and robbery or home invasion with a firearm.
What those who conduct ‘concealed carry’ classes do not want you to know: In Florida . . .
NO license is required to purchase or own a firearm.
NO license is required to transport a loaded firearm in your vehicle. (However, one must know how to do so legally.)
NO license is required to use a firearm to defend your life and home.
NO license is required to take a firearms training course to learn how to use a firearm.
Why do we inform you of this?
We are not in the ‘concealed carry class’ business. Rather,we are a non-profit organization that conducts self-defense, firearms training. We want you to be trained in the safe handling, use and storage of your firearm.
Unless specifically stated that firearm/handgun training is included, NO firearm/handgun training is conducted in a ‘concealed carry‘ class. Basically, NO ‘concealed carry‘ class includes any significant handgun training.
Possessing a concealed carry license does not mean you are trained to carry a deadly weapon in public. Rather, it only demonstrates that you paid the State of Florida $97 and passed a background check.
We want you to be trained in the handling, use and firing of a firearm for the defense of your life and the lives of your loved ones.
All our firearms training classes exceed the training requirements for applying for a Florida concealed carry license. Upon successful completion of any of our firearms training classes, an official certificate of training is issued good for applying for a Florida concealed carry weapons license. No other class or training is required for applying for a Florida license recognized in 37 states.
Even if you do not possess a concealed carry license or you never intend to apply for one, allow us to train you in the purchasing, handling, use, firing and storage of your firearm.
