Earlier today at Elmore Correctional Facility, in Elmore County, it was reported that multiple inmates were stabbed. The report also alleged that one of the inmates injured was flown to an outside emergency room.
Names of the inmates involved have not been confirmed at this time . Alabama Department of Corrections has not released any information in this incident at this time either.
Once again the summer heat brings the rain, by way of bloodshed in our overcrowded prisons in Alabama.
The incident at Elmore today follows the murder of an inmate at Bibb Correctional Facility last month, and the murder of an inmate at Bullock Correctional facility prior to that. Elmore Correctional Facility has a well known reputation for the high rate of violence, and multiple murders in the past few years.
We will update you as we receive information on today’s incident.
