The latest inmate death occurred Sunday afternoon after a fight between four Hispanic and two black prisoners in a six-man cell at the downtown Men’s Central Jail. A 38-year-old black inmate collapsed and died after the fight. Another black inmate had been killed Feb. 4 in racial fighting at the Pitchess Detention Center’s North Facility in Castaic, north of Los Angeles. On Sunday, two fights between black and Hispanic inmates broke out at the Pitchess facility. Five inmates suffered minor injuries before the fights were broken up with tear gas and pellet weapons.
