MUSKEGON, Mich. — Officials say an inmate at a western Michigan prison was attacked and killed over the weekend by two other inmates.

The Michigan Department of Corrections says in a statement that the inmate was in his cell Saturday afternoon at the Earnest C. Brooks Correctional Facility in Muskegon when two other prisoners walked in and attacked him with a weapon.

The victim left his cell after the attack in need of medical assistance and was pronounced dead about an hour later at a local hospital.

State correction officials said the two inmates believed responsible for the attack were placed in segregation and later transferred to a maximum-security facility.
