Several Inmates Shot and Stabbed at California Prison Riot
One inmate was shot and another 10 others were seriously wounded during a prison riot that took place in the Sacramento State prison in Folsom, California. The riot started this morning, about 11 am. An incident took place, which led to the guards shooting one of the inmates with a rifle and wounding him, according to officials.
A spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said that the riot is now “under control.” They also have no idea what started the riot.
