SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTLA) -- Two inmates killed another convict Thursday at a high-security Northern California prison, officials said.

Correctional officers said they saw Anthony Rodriguez and Cody Taylor attack Luis Giovanny Aguilar in the day room of a restricted housing unit at California State Prison, Sacramento.

They broke up the attack by firing foam baton rounds and found one inmate-manufactured weapon at the scene. Aguilar was pronounced dead a half-hour after the assault.

The victim was serving a four-year sentence from Los Angeles County for vehicle theft and attempting to evade a police officer while driving recklessly as a repeat offender.
