Seven prisoners killed during South Carolina fights

(AP) – A prisons spokesman says 7 inmates were killed and at least 17 others were seriously injured after fights broke out between prisoners inside a maximum security prison in South Carolina.

Spokesman Jeff Taillon announced the grim outcome after State Law Enforcement Division agents helped secure Lee Correctional Institution around 3 a.m. Taillon said no officers were wounded.
