An inmate was stabbed to death Thursday afternoon at California State Prison, Sacramento, and prison authorities identified two other inmates as suspects.
Humberto Torres, 33, was killed in C Facility, one of three maximum-security units at the prison in Folsom, according to a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation news release.
He was stabbed multiple times at 1:30 p.m. and pronounced dead at 1:56 p.m., authorities said. Torres came to the state prison system from Lake County on Jan. 26, 2000, and was serving a 25-year-to-life sentence for second-degree murder with a firearm. He had been an inmate in Folsom since May 27, 2015.
Prison officials named as suspects Rudy Delossantos, 38, and Michael Robles, 33.
Delossantos is serving a 25-year-to-life sentence for first-degree murder and came from Orange County on Nov. 1, 2006. He has been an inmate at California State Prison, Sacramento, since May 27, 2015.
Robles is serving a 200-year-to-life sentence for second-degree murder and was received from Riverside County on Feb. 25, 2005. He has been an inmate in Folsom since May 24, 2013.
Prison officials used six rounds of 40-mm rubber bullets, two blast dispersion grenades and pepper spray to disrupt the attack. They later found a stabbing instrument.
Three correctional officers were taken to a hospital with minor injures suffered during the incident, officials said.
California State Prison, Sacramento, opened in 1986 and is next to Folsom State Prison.
