US prison riot leaves 7 dead, sparks calls for mobile phones to be jammed

Local fire and rescue officials said that they were responding to a "mass casualty incident" Monday morning at the Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, which serves as a state prison for men.

The South Carolina Department of Corrections has released the identity of the seven inmates killed following an incident at Lee Correctional, Sunday evening.

He said 17 of the injured required medical attention outside the prison. The official cause of death will not be determined until after the autopsies. Multiple agencies responded to the incident.

Mr Taillon said multiple fights broke out between inmates at 7.15pm on Sunday.

South Carolina's prisons are understaffed, needing more correctional officers to guard inmates and more trained health professionals to help prisoners who are mentally ill.

Of South Carolina's nine all-male, maximum-security prisons, Lee Correctional Institution is the largest.

The state Department of Corrections also identified the inmates as Raymond Angelo Scott, Michael Milledge, Damonte Marquez Rivera, Eddie Casey Jay Gaskins, Joshua Svwin Jenkins, Corey Scott, and Cornelius Quantral McClary.

In Monday's press conference, McMaster said Stirling has led the battle for the whole country regarding prison signal jamming.

He said he believes that inmates using cellphones may have played a role in what happened, adding that violence started in one dorm, but soon inmates in other dorms found out about it. The prison capacity is 1,272 according to the SCDC website.
