Prisons spokesman Jeff Taillon announced the deaths after state police helped secure Lee Correctional Institution in the early hours of this morning.

One of South Carolina's most risky prisons has been secured after state police were called out to a disturbance.

Taillon said no officers were wounded after multiple inmate fights broke out at 7:15 p.m. Sunday.

A SC prison spokesman reported Monday morning that seven inmates are dead and 17 others were injured after a brawl broke out inside Lee Correctional Institution.

Some local media outlets reported the local coroner had been called to the scene.

At least six emergency agencies responded to a "mass casualty incident" that lasted more than seven hours and left seven inmates dead at a SC prison late Sunday, according to officials.
