The Indiana State Prison in Michigan City has been the scene of a bloody stabbing spree Friday when an armed inmate attacked staff members killing one and critically injuring the other.
Tymetri Campbell, 38, reportedly stabbed two correctional officers at around 2:30 p.m. Both were rushed to St. Anthony’s Hospital where one was pronounced dead.
“Indiana State Police is investigating 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 said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with our staff and their families. No further information is being released at this time.”
Campbell was convicted of a 2002 triple homicide in Indianapolis. Anthony P. Johnson, 26, and brothers Keith and Karl Resnover, ages 45 and 46, were shot dead in a drug-related incident.
