Several inmates killed, more than dozen injured in fights at dangerous South Carolina prison, official says

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

Lee Correctional Institution was secured at around 2:55 a.m. after multiple fights broke out in three housing units Sunday night, prison spokesman Jeff Taillon said. The incident started at around 7:15 p.m., he said.

All prison staff and responding law enforcement were safe after the incident, the South Carolina Department of Corrections wrote. The department added that the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) were assisting prison officials in its investigation.

Emergency services from several South Carolina counties responded to the “mass casualty incident,” Lee County Fire wrote in a tweet. Several local media outlets reported the local coroner was called to the scene.

Lee Correctional – located in Bishopville, 55 miles east of Columbia – has had several violent eruptions in the past.
