FAIRFIELD — An attempted escape Monday by a maximum-security inmate at the Solano County Superior Court building failed, but four people suffered injuries after the attack by the fire-extinguisher-wielding inmate, according to reports.
The inmate was in custody and scanner traffic indicated that four people were sent to NorthBay Medical Center with injuries, including the inmate.
At least one deputy was injured. It was unclear whether any of the other patients were officers, although some reports at the scene indicated that at least two officers were hurt.
Officers put up a perimeter around the building right after the incident, which happened a little before 11:30 a.m. But all inmates were reported accounted for – both in the jail and in the courthouses.
