Prison Employees Stabbed by Inmate in Mississippi

Authorities say three employees at the East Mississippi Correctional Facility near Meridian have been stabbed by an inmate.

Lauderdale County Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun says a prisoner being moved from one area to another used a homemade shank to stab the workers Tuesday afternoon.

The Meridian Star reports that one employee was treated at the facility, and two others were taken to a hospital with serious – but not-life threatening injuries.

Calhoun said an investigator has been assigned to the case and a decision on any charges would come later.
