Seven inmates are dead and another 17 injured after fights at the maximum-security facility in Bishopville, S.C., a state prisons spokesperson said.

Prisons spokesman Jeff Taillon announced the grim outcome after State Law Enforcement Division agents helped secure Lee Correctional Institution around 3 a.m. Monday. The incident started at 7:15 p.m. ET Sunday and involved "multiple inmate altercations in three housing units", Taillon said.

The South Carolina Department of Corrections says seven inmates have died following an incident at Lee Correctional Institution.

Lee County Fire/Rescue said ambulances from multiple jurisdictions lined up outside to tend to the wounded. EMS crews from Florence County, Kershaw County, Lexington County and Hartsville also responded. One inmate killed another during a fight in February.
