Associated Press Release

ATLANTA (AP) -- The father of an Atlanta high school student attacked by dogs on his school campus says his son is undergoing reconstructive surgery to repair gashes to his face.

Arthur Steverson tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1gkly2m) that his 16-year-old son, Azarius Lowe, is in so much pain that he had to be sedated at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Atlanta Public Schools officials say the student was bitten by dogs on a campus ball field Monday afternoon at The New Schools at Carver.

Fulton County Animal Control officials say two rottweilers attacked the boy. The attack prompted a brief lockdown of the school.

Lara Hudson, Executive Director for Fulton County Animal Services, says animal control officers planned to set traps in an attempt to capture the dogs. It was unclear who they belonged to.
