The graphic video shows that a prisoner in the Oklahoma City Prison took a guard hostage, assaulted and stabbed several suspects, before one of the suspects was shot.
The tragic footage of the hostage kidnapping at the Oklahoma detention center on March 27 showed that the 34-year-old prisoner Curtis Montrell Williams was holding a temporary knife in the detention facility officer Daniel · Misquez was shot in the neck when.
Misquez, who was kidnapped and captured for about an hour, saw in surveillance video that he was shot in the head by a second prisoner and stabbed several times in the leg.
Oklahoma City Police Chief Wade Gourley told reporters Friday that the guard also sprinkled pepper with his device.
KFOR reported that after prisoners complained about prison conditions, they claimed that they had no running water and were not fed, and chaos broke out.
“When I watched this video, what closely related to me was [Williams] Put the hostage on the knee in front of me and continue to hold the knife around this throat. This is what the police will face when they come in. “
The officer who shot Williams in the incident (live broadcast via social media) was identified as Lieutenant Coy Gilbert and Officer Kevin Cullman. Guri said that as the investigation continues, both of them are still on administrative leave.
On Friday, protesters outside the police station called for Gulli to be expelled because Williams’ relatives claimed he was killed for seeking better conditions in prison.
His mother, Rhonda Lambert, told Oklahoma State last week: “I have known Curtis for 34 years. I’m sure he will not go out and kidnap anyone.” The conditions in the prison made my son and many other people like him lose control.”
Lambert said Gulli should resign to deal with the incident and called on Gilbert and Cullman to face criminal charges.
A former inmate who was recently put in a prison told the newspaper that the inmate often dealt with inadequate safety facilities, cockroaches and bed bugs there.
The former prisoner said: “They placed three people in a two-person cell, and people sleep on the floor.” “Some toilets don’t flush or don’t have hot water… I told the people there that they need to start talking with them. chat. [reporters] In the news. “
Prison officials said that after being rescued, Misquez received treatment in the hospital and did not endanger his life. At the same time, Gourley rejected the call to resign.
Guri said: “I didn’t find anything here that could hint this.”
