EOCI inmate dead after assault

One Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution inmate has been killed after an altercation occurred earlier this morning.

A correctional officer was forced to fire the shot to prevent bodily injury to an inmate being assaulted, according to a press release from the Oregon Department of Correction.

The Inmate, Jayson Matthew Withers, was hit and transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

The officer fired a shot from a yard tower after two inmates, including Withers, were assaulting a third inmate. The inmate who was being attacked, was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injures. The third inmate is currently in disciplinary segregation at EOCI.  Names are not being released at this time.

Withers entered DOC in May 2010 on three counts of second-degree robbery, three counts of identity theft and one count of negligent homicide out of Marion County.

The prison is currently on lockdown status and visiting is canceled until further notice.

EOCI is a medium-security prison located in Pendleton that houses approximately 1,600 men.
