BUCKEYE, AZ - There's been an apparent stabbing of an inmate at the Lewis state prison complex in Buckeye.

Nick says the inmate was reported to be breathing, conscious and talking.
He's been taken to a hospital for further evaluation of the injuries that Nick said aren't believed to be life-threatening.
The inmate's identity wasn't released.
