Inmate Fight at FCI-McKean

A fight between several inmates at FCI-McKean this morning sent one of them to the hospital, but with injuries that were not as serious as originally reported.

Vicky Moser tells WESB five inmates got into a fight, and one had to be taken outside the facility for treatment. He is now back in the prison. The other four suffered only minor injuries.

Initial police radio reports said a man had been stabbed three times in the back and was in critical condition. A landing zone for a medical helicopter had been set up at Bradford Regional Airport, but he was taken to BRMC.

Moser says an investigation is ongoing, but at no time was there any danger to the public.
