TRACY (CBS13) — Corrections officials say a fight at the Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy led to a guard shooting an inmate.

It happened this afternoon in the main recreation yard.

We’re told two inmates attacked and stabbed a third. That victim suffered stab wounds to his head and chest and was transported to a hospital.

After ignoring orders to get on the ground, a tower officer fired on the attackers, hitting one. He was also transported to the hospital.

We will update this story as we get new details, including the status of the men involved.

    God be with the guards. It is so scary and a tough job to do.
