Fight at Raymond Detention Center leads to more hospitalizations

A second round of fights at a Mississippi jail has left more inmates hospitalized.

In late June, seven inmates were admitted to a hospital following fights inside of Raymond Detention Center in Hinds County, and last Friday morning, another fight broke out. According to the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office, three more inmates were hospitalized as a result.

Investigators are now working to determine “if this incident may be in retaliation from an earlier incident that occurred last week.”

Major Pete Luke said, “We are reviewing video and getting statements from the detention staff to identify who will face charges in these assaults.” 

Luke concluded by stating that “we are certain charges are forthcoming.”
