Logan says it appears most of the seven were killed by stabbing or slashing. Names have not been released. The prison was secure just before 3 a.m., the agency said. No employees were hurt.

Seven inmates have died and 17 others required outside medical attention after hours of fighting inside a maximum security prison in SC. Some local media reported the local coroner had been called.

Lee Correctional Institution, which is reported to have capacity to hold almost 1,800 inmates, is a maximum security facility built in 1993 to house violent offenders and inmates who exhibit behavioral problems.

The prison houses about 1,600 male inmates, the majority of them in general housing rather than more restricted housing, according to state records.
