LAWTON, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say that an Oklahoma state prison inmate died after being found stabbed inside the Lawton Correctional Facility.

The state Department of Corrections said on Saturday that 31-year-old Brian Piper was pronounced dead at a hospital on Friday night after being found with multiple stab wounds earlier in the day. The department said that visitation at the prison is canceled for the weekend.

No suspect has been identified and prisons spokesman Matt Elliott said there is no indication that the stabbing is related to earlier violence at six state prisons in September.
