Legal Question in Personal Injury in Michigan

My son's dog was brutally attacked and murdered in his apartment complex by a pit bull yesterday morning. The apartment complex has a "no pit bull policy". A maintenance man on site at the apartment complex witnessed the incident. What legal actions may we pursue.
