2 officers hurt at Mississippi jail under scrutiny
RAYMOND, MS.- Hinds County authorities say two guards injured during a jail incident may have deliberately violated policy and procedures before a fight took place.
The incident occurred June 11 at the Hinds County Detention Center in Raymond.
Hinds County Deputy Sheriff Chris Piccou says investigators are still looking at surveillance video to see what specifically started the fight.
The guards have not been identified.
In a news release Monday, Sheriff Tyrone Lewis said inmate Tracey Coleman has been charged with aggravated assault. The 22-year-old Coleman was arrested in January on a charge of murder in the fatal shooting of his father in December of 2014.
Piccou says the guards responsible for the incident could be suspended, fired or prosecuted depending on the results of the investigation.
