LOS ANGELES (AP) – Sheriff’s officials were trying to quell an inmate “disturbance” Wednesday at a county jail where racially motivated riots killed one inmate and wounded scores in recent days, authorities said. The incident occurred shortly after 1 p.m. at the Pitchess Detention Center, about 40 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Dianne Hecht. Injuries were reported, though it wasn’t immediately clear how many. Hecht said preliminary reports indicated the incident was racially charged. The same detention center was the site of rioting Saturday between Hispanic inmates and black inmates that killed one man and injured more than 100 others. It was followed by two other melees Monday night that caused one minor injury.
