Seven inmates dead, 17 injured in SC prison fighting

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

A coroner says it appears numerous seven inmates who were killed during hours of rioting at a maximum security SC prison died of stabbing and slashing wounds. There were more than 20,400 inmates held in SC facilities a year ago, down from a peak of 24,040 inmates held in 2010, state records show.
