'Mass casualty incident' reported at SC maximum security prison

Logan said Lee Correctional Institution, like most other SC prisons, is struggling to find enough workers, but he doesn't believe anything could be done once things got that far out of control.

A sign in front of the Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, South Carolina, is seen in this image from Google Maps. Four inmates were killed by a pair of prisoners in the state's Kirkland Correctional Institution past year.

Officials say a lot of them were stabbed or slashed; No officers were wounded, and the names of the dead haven't been released. Physicians were not able to stop the combating defend the jail until approximately 2:55 % on Monday.

Prisons spokesman Jeff Taillon said State Law Enforcement Division agents were required to help secure Lee Correctional Institution at 3am local time on Monday (8am in the UK).

In February, inmate Robert Odell Brown was killed by another inmate at Lee Correctional Institution. Some local media reported the local coroner had been called.

The maximum-security facility houses about 1,500 inmates, some of South Carolina's most violent and longest-serving offenders.

Last month, inmates reportedly overpowered an officer for more than an hour and took control of one side of a housing unit.
