Several inmates dead after incident at SC prison

A spokesman for the state's prisons says seven inmates were killed and at least 17 others were seriously injured as inmates fought uninterrupted for more than seven hours.

In late March of this year, several inmates overpowered a correctional officer and held the officer hostage for nearly an hour and a half.

"I just saw three dead on the sidewalk outside of my unit".

The fighting was described as "multiple inmate-on-inmate altercations".

In February, one inmate killed another at the prison.
