Guam - The Department of Corrections has launched an internal affairs investigation after an altercation erupted between two inmates.

Agency spokesperson Jeff Limo confirms a fight between two maximum security inmates turned violent. "One received a stab wound in the back area and medical attention was given to both individuals," he said.

KUAM News has learned that one of the inmates used what appeared to be a nail to stab the other inmate. The incident occurred in DepCor's Special Housing Unit for maximum security inmates, which according to Limo, houses closes to 50 inmates

The Special Housing Unit is also the same unit that an internal affairs investigation was launched after an anonymous video was sent to KUAM showing an inmate giving a foot massage to a DepCor officer that same officer was also seen sitting with an inmate who was holding and using a cell phone.

KUAM News has learned the two inmates involved in the fight are actually being held in two separate floors and there is no reason why they should have been able to interact.
