Deputies investigate shooting at Cole County Jail

An inmate is recovering this morning after a shooting at the Cole County Jail.

The Sheriff’s Department posted on their Facebook last night that during a weapons offense, an inmate was shot and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies said no officers were involved.

Sheriff John Wheeler said they are unsure if the shooting occurred between two inmates or if it was a self-inflicted gun shot wound.

Officers will continue to investigate.
