Fulton County Jail inmate shoots fellow inmate

The overpopulated and understaffed Fulton County jail remained on lock down for most of the day Tuesday following reports that an inmate shot a fellow inmate.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Fulton County Jail released few details about the shooting incident, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Jail spokesman Tracy Flanagan did confirm that an unidentified inmate was shot once in the hand by a fellow inmate. This report conflicted with an earlier statement from a sheriff’s deputy inside the jail who told the AJC that the inmate was shot three times.

The alleged shooter was identified as Kortez Hurt, who has an extensive rap sheet, including 14 prior convictions for felony murder, aggravated assault, drug possession and theft charges.

Flanagan did not say how Hurt was able to obtain the small caliber handgun that was “no bigger than a mobile phone.”

According to the AJC, a sweep of the jail turned up 20 cell phones, in addition to other contraband, which the inmates are not allowed to have. (The AJC later edited its website to remove any mention of the cell phones.)

Jail officials said the two inmates were involved in a dispute over the commissary (money). The shooting may also be gang related. The injured inmate was initially treated by jail medical personnel. His injuries are said to be non life threatening.

Immediately after the shooting, the jail went on lock down and all non-essential staff and food service workers were ordered out of the building. As the growing media assembled outside the jail, deputies were seen bringing refreshments and food to the food service workers as they waited in 90 degree temperatures in the parking lot.

In 2002, a federal judge ordered Fulton County to fix overcrowding and other problems at the jail after HIV-positive defendants complained of poor medical conditions endangering their lives. Overcrowding and security remains a problem at the jail.

    they are clowning in these jails. If they can get cellphones,drugs, and guns no telling what else they can get. That’s why I don’t visit folks in jail :no:

  • Tatted Diva

    How in’da heyul did this muthaflucka get a handgun in the jail??? This shyt is unfathomable! :no:

    How da, Who da, what da… Dis chit here when you ain’t even safe from being shot… in jail? :hahaha:

  • yvonne79

    Yes, I for one would like to know how the inmate came into possession of the firearm. If they were able to get cell phones in, I’m pretty sure the gun came in the same way. Just my theory…. :coffee:

    On another note, does an inmate have a right to complain about the conditions of jail? Receiving poor medical treatment? Rhetorical question……

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    yeah they have access to pretty much everything which explains lil boosie twit pic from jail

  • Anna

    @Tatted. I was thinking the same thing. I thought you only had to worry about being shanked or raped. How does one smuggle a gun in jail? Never mind, I don’t want to know.

    @Gaggirl87. How sad, but the first thing you do on a field trip is a head count, while getting kids in and out of a vehicle.

  • FoxE

    Morning everyone! :waves:

    @Yvonne
    I think they have the “right” to live in a safe environment including getting medical treatment. Otherwise dont they consider that cruel & unusal punishment or something :shrug:

    Have you heard about a guy who robbed a bank for $1, so he can go to jail and get the medical treatment he needs :no:

  • mrsloveleigh

    Gagirl that was a horrible story. I worked at a daycare for many years and the proper procedure is to get the kids off the bus and then do a row by row sweep. Car rides make little ones sleepy so it’s important to go look. I was adamant about counting heads and checking each row

    if you’re gonna pop one off, let it be in defense of your life or *ss. why you gonna use a weapon like that over some damn potato chips or something? bu the bigger questions is….why is this n****a not in PRISON?

  • Tatted Diva

    @ Alex….glad you made it safely from Target….. :yes:

  • yvonne79

    @FoxE: I do agree that denying adequate basic medical care to innates would be inhumane but what kind of treatment are the prisoners expecting? Maybe additional details will come as the story developes…

  • FoxE

    @Gagirl

    I read about that… How do you forget a 2 year old? Who was in charge?
    :think: I wonder if they had the proper kid to adult ratio…

It’s a shame when you can go to prison and get taken care of better than when you’re on the street w/no job!

    1st off, majority of the jail is black..you people are always hustling and tryna make an extra nickle on the side. So it’s no surprise he got a gun, and other inmates get cell phones, weed, pills, etc. The CO’s helping them out. Brian Nichols wasn’t in a month and had a cell phone soon after.

    I need a CO contact cuz them fools in there will pay 3-500 for a $20 cell phone.

    But no, I wasn’t surprised at this story at all. Actually kinda bitter than I can’t figure out how to get my hustle flowing inside.

    And if Fulton county jails are “underemployed” then they need to transfer some of them mofos from dekalb county to fulton…. Dekalb county is OVER-employed x2. They keepin n*ggas in check on the east side forreal….

  • DMisses

    This is just shameful smh the entire staff at that prison should be fired including the warden! Something like this never would’ve happened at a penitentiary in Texas or Louisiana, it’s obvious the inmates in Fulton county jail have way too much freedom if they have access to cell phones and handguns. I watch this show called Border Wars that comes on National Geographic and they are always busting people for trying to smuggle items into prisons, majority of the time it’s the guards that do it but they don’t show you that, I have family locked up so I know better. They’re overworked and underpaid and if an inmate has money and is willing to buy whatever they want their willing to get it for them.

  • http://www.twitter.com/prytibrownis PrytiBrownIs

    yea my friends brother is in jail and hes tweetin n send pics n stuff. the reg phones cost $500…web access on them cos $650 and a camera phone is like $900-1000. and all the guards have to do is bust them every once in a while and they have to pay all over again.
