An attempted escape from a North Carolina prison left multiple people injured Thursday, public safety officials said.

An attempted prison escape in Elizabeth City resulted in several injured employees, the N.C. Department of Public Safety said in a tweet Thursday.

Corrections officer Justin Smith, 35, and 50-year-old Veronica Darden, a supervisor with Corrections Enterprises were killed, according to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.

The prison near the northeast North Carolina coast houses almost 900 adult, male felons in both high-security and minimum-custody buildings. Minimum-security prisoners work outside the walls on road gangs for the county recycling department and performing other community labor.

PREVIOUS: At least 12 hospitalized including prison employees and inmates. In April, an argument between two inmates at the prison led to one prisoner stabbing the other several times in the upper torso. It was unclear how many were employees.
