    SOUTH CANAAN TWP., WAYNE COUNTY -- A corrections officer was killed by an inmate at USP Canaan last night.

    34-year-old Eric Williams from Nanticoke was pronounced dead at the hospital around 11:30 P.M. Federal officials say an inmate used a homemade weapon to assault the guard.

    "This is clearly the darkest day in our institution's short history and we are in shock over this senseless loss of a colleague and friend," said the prison's warden.

    Williams began his career with the Bureau of Prisons in September 11, 2011.

    The prison remains in lockdown. We'll have more information as it becomes available.

    That is terrible. Thoughts to his family, and to all of my former BOP coworkers, please stay safe.
