Seven inmates killed in SC prison violence

LEE CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONAuthorities are dealing with an incident in a prison in South Carolina

Multiple fights at one of South Carolina's most unsafe prisons left at least seven dead and 17 others injured, a prison official said Monday.

Logan said he just finished identifying all the dead Monday and is working to notify relatives. Logan said Lee Correctional Institution, like most other SC prisons, is struggling to find enough workers, but he doesn't believe anything could be done once things got that far out of control.

Lee County Coroner Larry Logan told The Associated Press that he arrived to a chaotic scene of fights everywhere at Lee Correctional Institution.

No officers were wounded, he said.

Mr Taillon said multiple fights broke out between inmates at 7.15pm on Sunday.

Gov. Henry McMaster's spokesman Brian Symmes tells The Associated Press on Monday that the governor has "complete confidence" in director Bryan Stirling's ability to lead the South Carolina Department of Corrections. Four inmates were killed by a pair of prisoners in the state's Kirkland Correctional Institution a year ago.

According to the South Carolina Department of Corrections, the number of inmates held in state prisons has declined in recent years after peaking almost a decade ago.

"Sunday's deadly incident came three weeks after inmates briefly held an officer hostage and took control of part of a dorm at the Bishopville prison", The State newspaper reports.

Lee Correctional Institution, which is reported to have capacity to hold almost 1,800 inmates, is a maximum security facility built in 1993 to house violent offenders and inmates who exhibit behavioral problems.
