LEE CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONAuthorities are dealing with an incident in a prison in South Carolina

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

The situation was only brought under control early on Monday morning, almost eight hours later.

He said multiple fights broke out at 7.15pm on Sunday evening.

Lee County Fire and Rescue says it assisted in "a Mass Causality Incident at Lee Correctional", adding that other emergency crews from neighboring counties - including some that are roughly 40 miles away - also pitched in. She joined The Post in 2016 after seven years with the Arizona Republic. No officers were wounded, he said.

Lee County Coroner Larry Logan told The Associated Press that he arrived to a chaotic scene of fights everywhere at Lee Correctional Institution. Officials say the institution was secured at 2:55 a.m. Monday morning.


At least seven inmates were killed and 17 injured when a prison melee broke out at a SC prison, officials said.

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

The 250 inmates taken to the hospital after assaults the past two years were almost double the rate from the two years before, the newspaper reported.

Gov. Henry McMaster, meanwhile, expressed support for state prisons chief Bryan Stirling.
