SUSSEX, Va. (WWBT) - An inmate at the Sussex I State Prison has died after an “apparent offender-on-offender” fight with the man’s cellmate.

Prison officials said they believe 45-year-old Pakastan Algier Gary and his cellmate, Frank Elmo Reid, got into a fight just after 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Gray was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, but later died at Southside Regional Medical Center.

Reid was serving time for his involvement in a 2015 hostage situation in Richmond and led police on a chase throughout the city. The incident ended with a man being shot in the head and surviving.
