Seven Dead At Lee Correctional Institution

Seven inmates were killed there after fights broke out Sunday night.

The South Carolina Corrections Department tweeted that State Law Enforcement Division agents responded just before midnight Sunday to "an ongoing situation" at Lee Correctional Institution. Officers were unable to stop the fighting and secure the prison until around 2:55 a.m. on Monday. The local coroner's office also responded.

Seven inmates were killed and 17 more were injured during a "mass casualty incident" at a maximum security prison in SC.

Officials have not released the names of the seven inmates killed in the riot, not have officials commented on the condition of the 17 injured inmates.

In March, inmates held a prison officer hostage for around one hour and 25 minutes while they took control of part of their dormitory.

Authorities added that all prison staff and responding law enforcement were "safe and accounted for".

Another inmate was killed during a fight at the facility in February, with two officers stabbed during a fight that broke out in Lee Correctional in 2015.

Taillon could not confirm any more details yet, including who is involved and if there are any injuries or fatalities.
