Minor Incident Reported At WCI

June 16th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional services confirms to WCBC News that an incident that came across the scanner as a "stabbing" at the Western Correctional Institution was far less serious than the initial report would indicate.

Spokesman Gerard Shields tells us the incident was nothing major, as an inmate was punctured by a screw and an ambulance crew was called in to transport the inmate to have it removed.

Shields called it an in house medical situation and that officials were just "playing it safe."
