A video shared on social media appears to show a correctional officer at the Elmore County Correctional facility beating an incarcerated individual on the roof of a building at the facility.
The video shows what appears to be a group of correctional staff outside a building at the Elmore County facility, with an incarnated man in distress on the roof’s edge. An individual correctional guard is seen walking up towards the distressed individual at the crest of the roof.
The correctional guard then pulls the individual away from the edge of the roof and appears to begin beating him.
A separate angle of the incident, shared in a video on social media, shows what appears to be the correctional officer striking the individual three times, before pausing and striking an additional two times.
The name of the incarcerated individual being beaten is not currently known, with the video taken on Wednesday, according to a source within the Alabama correctional system.
APR was not able to verify the identity of the correctional officer beating the individual on the rooftop.
ADOC has yet to comment on the incident as of Friday afternoon.
