After hours-long rioting at Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina, infighting between inmates left seven dead and 17 injured.

Many of the injured and killed inmates were slashed, stabbed or beaten to death, according to the Lee County Coroner Larry Logan, who also mentioned the use of shanks in the riot. Lee County Fire and Rescue are calling this riot a “mass casualty.” MORE HERE
