Several inmates dead after incident at SC prison

Several inmates dead after incident at SC prison

No officers were injured, said Jeffrey Taillon, communications director for the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

Authorities did not explain what prompted the violence.

Family members of inmates who began gathering at the facility Monday were provided little information. The inmate, who said most of the inmates had gang affiliations, exchanged messages on condition of anonymity because he wasn't supposed to have a cellphone and feared retribution from other inmates. In 2013, Michael McCall, then the warden at Lee, said it was the most risky prison in SC.

"For 16 minutes, all they talked about was a problem, which is the cellphone jamming", Dixon said.

"How else are you going to die in prison?" The prison capacity is 1,272 according to the SCDC website.

Last month, inmates in one part of the prison allegedly took an officer hostage and controlled one side of a dormitory, part of a troubled history that has saw one inmate kill another in February and two officers stabbed in 2015.

Lee County Sheriff's Office also responded to the incident.

They say the incident resulted in 17 inmates requiring outside medical attention and seven inmates were killed.
