One dead following riot at California Men's Colony”

The melee broke out around midday in the yard at the California Men's Colony near San Luis Obispo, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said.

Authorities say an inmate has been killed and several others were stabbed in a large riot at a prison on California's central coast.

Lt. Monica Ayon, a spokeswoman for CMC, confirmed that a riot broke out at the prison.

Multiple inmates were stabbed during the riot, which began just before 11:00 a.m.in the 600-person East Facility medium-custody yard. Nine inmates were taken to an outside hospital where one died. No prison staff were hurt during the riot, and no deadly force was used. Colony staff attempted to disperse the riot with 40 mm "less-than-lethal" bullets and "chemical agents". She said it was the largest riot, and the first such fatal incident, she could recall in her 22 years at the facility.

One of the inmates, identified as 25-year-old Matthew Cook, was pronounced dead at 1:05 p.m., the CDCR said. "I'm sure in the next couple of days the entire incident will hit them but right now they're just focused on doing their job".

According to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center spokesman Ron Yukelson, the hospital was notified of a "mass casualty incident" about noon, and was told by CMC to expect three trauma patients and six patients with less-serious injuries.

The condition of the eight others was not immediately known, but Lieutenant Ayon said two of the injured were expected to be discharged and returned to the prison last night.
