An inmate who was stabbed several times at Maryland Correctional Institution-Hagerstown Tuesday night was in stable condition this morning, according to George Gregory, a spokesman for the Maryland Division of Correction.

Gregory said the DOC is not releasing the inmate's name because the stabbing is under investigation.

A correctional officer did not see the stabbing, which occurred at about 8:30 p.m., but found the 23-year-old inmate with several puncture wounds, Gregory said.

He said authorities do not know who stabbed the inmate, but the yard was locked down and a homemade weapon was found.

The inmate who was stabbed was serving a three-year sentence on charges of possession of drugs with intent to distribute and possession of weapons, Gregory said.
