US mass stabbing: In yet another distressing mass stabbing in the United States, one individual lost live and other four sustained injuries at the Fulton County Jail.

According to the sources, situation was under control by Thursday afternoon and an investigation is underway

The sheriff’s office said Atlanta police “will release the names and criminal charges of the inmates involved in this incident.”

“Preliminary investigation reveals the inmate suffered injuries from a dispute with multiple inmates involving weapons. The inmate was transported to Grady Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries,” the department said in a news release.

The Fulton County Sherrif Patrick “Pat” Labat said in a statement the recent outbreak of violence at the Jail is a grave concern and claimed that the long-standing, dangerous overcrowding and the crumbling walls of the facility that are literally being crafted into makeshift weapons are used by inmates to attack each other and staff.

This is the fifth death of a Fulton County jail inmate since the end of July, sources reported. 

The sheriff’s office said 40-year-old Montay Stinson was found unresponsive in his cell on the night of July 31.
