Officials are declining comment about a shooting that reportedly occurred at a Geo Group (formerly Cornell Corrections) prison late Tuesday morning.
According to several sources, an inmate was accidentally shot just before noon Tuesday at the Flightline Unit, one of Geo's prison units in this area.
Big Spring Emergency Medical Service units responded to the scene and the prisoner was transported to an area hospital.
The inmate's wound was not believed to be life-threatening.
It is unknown at this time what prompted the incident.
Geo Group officials had not responded to requests for information as of press time Wednesday.
