One Stabbing; One Officer Involved Shooting at Pelican Bay This Morning
Both attacks occurred in the “general population yard,” Sessa said. “The first involved three inmates attacking a 4th.” This began at approximately 9:12 a.m. The 4th inmate was the victim of a stabbing. He has since been transported to a hospital.
Just after the first attack, Sessa said, at 9:15 a.m., a second attack occurred. “Two inmates attack[ed] a third one,” Sessa explained. “Officers had to use force to break it up so one of the assailants was shot in the arm…The inmate is being transported to a hospital for care.”
Sessa said the two attacks are under investigation so details cannot be released at this point. Meanwhile, inmates’ movements are being restricted “until we can at least finish the cursory initial investigation.”
