SUSANVILLE ( & KRNV) -- The Investigative Services Unit at High Desert State Prison is investigating an attempted homicide of an inmate just before 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.

According to a press release, the incident started when two inmates attacked a third with an inmate-manufactured weapon. After he was stabbed, he fell to the ground unable to defend himself. The two inmates were ordered to stop the attack. When they did not stop, custody staff members quickly intervened.

No staff members were injured in the incident. One inmate was shot in the abdomen, with an exit wound. The two injured inmates were flown to a hospital in Reno. Further details about their condition are not currently known.

High Desert investigators identified William Robert Dye, 45, of Butte County, and Calvin Lee Parrack, 37, of Contra Costa County as the two suspects in the attack. Dye is serving life with the possibility of parole for attempted second-degree murder, and Parrack is serving 18 years for attempted second-degree murder.
