The Department of Corrections has confirmed that an inmate died at the state prison in Ionia on Tuesday.

A spokesman says Dustin Szot of Muskegon died after officers used a stun gun to break up a fight between him and another inmate.

He says the stun gun was used after the inmates refused orders to stop fighting. 

We'll let you know when the results of the autopsy are available.
