Authorities say a prison fight led to the death of a 42-year-old inmate in the federal prison in Pollock.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons says Steven Prater died Thursday after he was involved in a fight with another inmate in the high-security section of the Federal Correctional Complex in Pollock.
The agency says Prater was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 3 p.m.
Prater was serving a 51-month sentence on a weapons charge.
No other inmates were injured in the fight.
The FBI is looking into the death.
