A Lee Correctional Institution inmate has died after a stabbing, according to the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

In a tweet Monday evening, the department stated the stabbing occurred and resulted in the death of one inmate.

A later tweet by the department identified the inmate as Larry Rainey, saying the death was the result of an inmate-on-inmate altercation.

An investigation into the death is underway.

Details of the incident are limited at this time. Back in July, an inmate died at Lee Correctional Institution after a fight broke out.
