A Florida Department of Corrections spokesman says two inmates got into a fight this weekend in Sneads at the Apalachee Correctional Institution.

DOC says it happened in the East Unit of the prison. Dead is 31-year-old Nicholas White, an inmate since 2004.

DOC officials refuse to comment on camera and are releasing few details leading to White's death.

We can tell you that the other inmate remains in custody.

There are currently more than 1,300 inmates at the Apalachee Correctional Institution's East Unit and only 286 staff, but DOC says the prison was fully staffed when the incident took place.
