Seven Dead At Lee Correctional Institution

Seven inmates have been killed and at least 17 others seriously injured amid fighting between prisoners inside a maximum security prison in SC.

South Carolina Department of Corrections did not immediately return a request for comment Monday morning. Officers were unable to stop the fighting and secure the prison until around 2:55 a.m. on Monday.

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

The South Carolina Department of Corrections tweeted that it involved multiple inmate-on-inmate altercations in three housing units.

Of South Carolina's nine all-male, maximum-security prisons, Lee Correctional Institution is the largest. In 2013, Michael McCall, then the warden at Lee, said it was the most unsafe prison in SC.
