ELMORE, Ala. (AP) - An inmate is in serious condition after another inmate stabbed him at an Alabama state prison.

The Alabama Department of Corrections says the inmate was stabbed multiple times during a fight Thursday in one of the dorms at the Staton Correctional Facility in Elmore.

Officials have not released the injured inmate’s name.

The suspect in the stabbing, 28-year-old Darrell Mosely, is serving a 20-year sentence for murder in Mobile County. ADOC officials say he will face additional charges for the stabbing.

The department has not determined what led to the altercation or weapon used in the assault.

Authorities said the incident was isolated and a temporary lockdown of the facility was lifted late Thursday.
