Investigation underway after inmate shot, killed by correctional officer

An inmate at Folsom State Prison was shot and killed by a correctional officer Thursday, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said. The inmate, 34-year-old Martin Pacheco, died Wednesday after being shot in the back, officials said. Prison officials said Pacheco and two other inmates were attacking another inmate, 37-year-old Paul Solis, with weapons they made. Officials said the inmates ignored correctional officers’ orders to stop the attack. The officers then used “chemical agents and three rounds from their state-issued Mini-14 rifles to stop the attack,” CDCR said.
