Inmate Killed During Correctional Facility Escape 7-15-2010

Michigan authorities said an inmate serving life for murder in a shooting spree that killed his parents, grandfather, brother and brother's girlfriend has been fatally shot trying to escape from prison.
The Corrections Department said a corrections officer shot 30-year-old Seth Privacky on Thursday morning.
Authorities said Privacky and two other inmates, Andrew Ross and Brian Davidson, overpowered a man driving a tractor-trailer at the Kinross Correctional Facility in Chippewa County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
They said they then drove the truck through a double chain-link fence. The other two inmates surrendered.
The semi driver was treated at the facility for non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.
Cordell said the facility that holds more than 1,800 prisoners remained on lockdown.
Privacky was sentenced to life in prison without parole after he pleaded no contest to five counts of first-degree murder in the 1998 Muskegon-area killings.
Ross and Davidson have been transferred to a segregation unit within a high security prison.
Michigan State Police are investigating.
Kinross Correctional Facility has the largest fenced area -- 113 acres currently enclosed -- of any state prison in Michigan.
The perimeter of the Kinross prison is composed of two perimeter chain-link fences monitored with electronic security devices, topped with razor-ribbon wire and is patrolled by armed personnel.
