GOGEBIC COUNTY - Michigan State Police say a prisoner at the Ojibway Correctional Facility in the western Upper Peninsula died after an attack.

Detective Sergeant Russell Larson at the Wakefield post said troopers got a call about an assault on an inmate Friday.

Larson says the inmate died at a hospital the next day.

Larson didn't identify the victim.

Media reports say he was 26-year-old Randolph Conner and died from a brain injury.

Two other inmates punched and kicked him.

The prison has put them in higher-security detention.

Conner was serving time for home invasion, safe-breaking and larceny.

The prison is about 20 miles east-southeast of Ironwood.
