The identity is released of the Fayette County prisoner who died on Friday.

David Munday, 50, was serving time at Mount Olive Correctional Complex for shooting a law enforcement officer in 2002.

A Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety spokesman says Munday assaulted a staff member Friday. When other staff tried to intervene, a corrections officer was injured.

The spokesman says that once Munday was subdued, he became combative and was restrained. Munday then suffered a medical episode and was taken to a medical unit for treatment, but died.

An internal investigation is underway.
