A woman found dead in the parking lot of a Costco in Bakersfield, California, was probably attacked by dogs, police said.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, was found "suffering from overt trauma" Sunday morning, the Bakersfield Police Department said in a press release. A cause of death has not been determined.
Animal control found a pit bull and a large mixed race dog with a business owner near Costco, the NBC Los Angeles reports. A third dog that was considered a scam was also found.
All three dogs were taken into animal control custody and will be euthanized, NBC Los Angeles reports.
Attempts by NBC News to reach Costco on Tuesday were not immediately successful.
Death follows two other recent events at Costco stores in California. Friday night Kenneth French, 32, was shot dead at Costco in Corona, about 47 miles from Los Angeles. French, as family members said, were mentally challenged and non-verbal, allegedly assaulted by an off-duty police officer who then shot him.
French was pronounced dead on the spot. The officer who fired has not been identified.
Monday, a couple with an infant aboard and shot while they unloaded groceries in their car in the parking lot of a Costco in the San Diego area. The Chula Vista Police Department told NBC San Diego that the slider approached the man and woman from behind and opened fire.
The couple were rushed to the hospital, where they both went to surgery, police told the outlet. The man was shot five times, but could communicate. The child was not injured in the shooting.
The suspect who believed to have been the woman's alien lover killed himself in the parking lot, according to NBC San Diego.
