LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) - Officials say a corrections officer was ambushed and stabbed at a north Florida prison.
Florida Department of Corrections spokesman Alberto Moscoso told The Miami Herald that 41-year-old Shane Biancaniello was airlifted to a Gainesville hospital Monday afternoon. His injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
Moscoso says Biancaniello suffered "superficial" wounds, and two other guards sustained minor injuries during a melee at Columbia Correctional Institution, a maximum security facility in Lake City.
Authorities weren't immediately saying how many inmates were involved.
