TRACY, Calif. (AP) — A guard shot and wounded a Northern California prison inmate after another prisoner was stabbed in a basketball court attack.

The state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says two inmates armed with home-made weapons attacked a third man Thursday afternoon at Deuel Vocational Institution in Tracy.

The victim was stabbed in the head and chest.

After the attackers ignored orders to stop, a tower guard fired a rifle shot, wounding one of them.

Both wounded inmates were taken to a hospital but there’s no word on their conditions.

The second attacker was treated at the prison for a cut to his hand.

There’s no word on what prompted the attack.
