March 18, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Two inmates suspected of fatally stabbing a third inmate during a fight Saturday night have been placed in segregation pending an investigation by state police, a Baltimore City Detention Center spokeswoman said yesterday.

Barbara Cooper, the spokeswoman, said Tyrone John Thomas Pinder, 22, who was being held on murder and other charges, was stabbed in the chest about 7 p.m. in a housing area of the north building. She said he received first aid from jail personnel before being taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he died at 8: 30 p.m.

No weapon was recovered, Ms. Cooper said.

She said the detention center at 401 E. Eager St., which is operated by the state, was placed in lockdown after the stabbing, meaning visitation and other privileges have been suspended.
