A woman found dead in the parking lot of a Costco in Bakersfield, California, was most likely attacked by dogs, the police said.
The woman who has not yet been identified was found to be "obviously traumatized." On Sunday morning, the Bakersfield Police Department said in a press release. No cause of death was found.
Animal Control found a pit bull and a large mongrel dog at a store near Costco, reports NBC Los Angeles. A third dog, who is believed to be a stray dog, was also found.
All three dogs were put under animal control detention and are euthanized, reports NBC Los Angeles.
NBC News attempts to reach Costco on Tuesday were not immediately successful.
The death is due to two more incidents in Costco stores in California. On Friday night, 32-year-old Kenneth French was shot dead at a Costco in Corona, some 76 kilometers from Los Angeles. French, whose family members said it was spiritually challenged and non-verbal, allegedly attacked a duty-free police officer who shot him.
French was declared dead at the scene. The policeman who fired was not identified.
On Monday, a couple were ambushed and shot dead with a baby as they unloaded food in their car in the parking lot of a Costco in the San Diego area. Chula Vista police told NBC San Diego that the shooter had approached the man and woman from behind and had opened the fire.
The couple was taken to the hospital, where both were operated on. The man was shot five times but was able to communicate. The baby was not injured in the shootout.
The suspect, who was probably the estranged lover of the woman, killed himself in the parking lot, according to NBC San Diego.
