Six people taken to hospital after attempted NC prison escape

North Carolina Department of Public Safety tweeted Thursday afternoon that there was an "attempted escape at Pasquotank Cl in Elizabeth City".

Three prison employees were in critical condition at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and seven were treated and released from Sentara Albemarle Medical Center in Elizabeth City.

The high-security prison has 896 male inmates, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Inmates started a fire in the prison's sewing plant and then tried to escape, the statement said.

They didn't disclose how officer Justin Smith and Correction Enterprises manager Veronica Darden were killed at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution in Elizabeth City. The prison is now under control and locked down, with all inmates accounted for in multiple counts.

Members of the Prison Emergency Response Team responded to Pasquotank CI from other state prison facilities and are assisting the local prison staff.

The Pasquotank Correctional Institute, according to its website, is a high security prison for men.

The public school district locked doors at three nearby schools after getting word about 3:30 p.m. of the escape attempt.

Public Safety Secretary Erik A. Hooks released a statement Thursday that said in part "Our deepest sympathies go out to the families and co-workers of the employees who lost their lives in service to the State". "Several employees injured." It added there would be "more info when available". Sentara asks that family of the injured avoid the campus. After school events and athletics have been cancelled.

"Students on buses who had not arrived home already, were brought back to the schools due to the potential of inmates being in the area and students in transport".
