One Guard Killed, Another Injured in Prison Attack

News

An Indiana inmate convicted of a 2002 triple murder fatally stabbed one corrections officer and seriously injured another at the maximum-security prison where he’s serving a 130-year sentence, authorities said Monday.

The wounded Indiana State Prison officers were transported Sunday to a hospital in Michigan City.

One was pronounced dead and the second was listed in serious condition, Indiana State Police said.

Inmate Tymetri Campbell, 38, faces several preliminary charges, including murder, for allegedly attacking the officers Sunday afternoon in a common area at the prison in Michigan City, State Police Sgt. Ted Bohner said Monday.

Bohner said he did not know what type of weapon was used in the stabbing.

He added that no additional details, including a possible motive, would be immediately released on the attack.

Do you think cities should defund police departments?

State police are still investigating the attack.

“Indiana State Police is investigating an incident involving the lethal stabbing of one staff member and stabbing injuries sustained by a second staff member at the Indiana State Prison,” The Indiana Department of Correction posted on Facebook on Sunday.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with our staff and their families. No further information is being released at this time.

A message was left Monday morning seeking comment from the state agency asking whether the name of the deceased officer would be released.

The Indiana State Prison is a maximum-security prison with about 2,300 inmates.

The prison is also home to Indiana’s death row, according to the DOC’s website.

It’s located about 34 miles west of South Bend in Michigan City, a city along Indiana’s Lake Michigan shoreline.

Campbell is serving a 130-year sentence after pleading guilty to three murders in the 2002 shooting, WISH-TV reported.

In a 2007 appeal, he apologized for “being there” at the time of the deaths but said he didn’t kill anyone.
