STRINGTOWN, Okla. (AP) — Corrections officials say an inmate at a southeast Oklahoma prison has been stabbed to death by three other inmates.

Mack Alford Correctional Center warden's assistant Trent Griffin says 23-year-old Deshawn Reed was pronounced dead shortly after the attack Thursday. Griffin tells the McAlester News-Capital that three inmates used homemade knives to attack Reed in a cell.

Griffin says the prison in Stringtown is on lockdown status until further notice because of the stabbing. He says the Department of Corrections Internal Affairs Division is investigating the death.

Reed was serving a 22-year prison sentence for a first-degree manslaughter conviction out of Tulsa County. His release was scheduled for 2032.
