Main Jail Inmate in Critical Condition

On September 26, 2021, at 7:50 p.m., an inmate at the Sacramento County Main Jail pushed his emergency call button and advised deputies he had got into a physical fight with his cell mate.

Deputies responded to the cell and found an unresponsive male adult victim and immediately began life saving measures until correctional health medical personnel arrived to assist.  Fire transported the victim to a local area hospital where he remains in critical condition.
