BRENTWOOD — Oakland Raiders cornerback Taiwan Jones' agent said the NFL player is upset that his two dogs killed a neighbor's Chihuahua this week.

The Contra Costa Times reports Friday (http://bit.ly/16Npept) that animal control officials are investigating Monday's attack in Jones' Brentwood neighborhood.

Olivia Paredes said she was walking her 12-year-old Chihuahua when two pit bull mixes accompanied by Jones charged at her dog.

Jones' agent, Doug Hendrickson, said his client feels terrible about what happened. Hendrickson said the dogs have never attacked humans or other animals before.

The dogs are being quarantined pending the investigation.
