Former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke, in prison for the murder of black teen Laquan McDonald, was reportedly beaten in prison by other inmates and suffered facial injuries.
As NBC Chicago reported, Van Dyke is in prison in Danbury, Connecticut, after being convicted of shooting McDonald to death while on duty. Van Dyke was in the general population of the prison when the attack took place, the report added.
Details of the attack were not yet clear, but sources said that Van Dyke was expected to be OK despite suffering facial injuries in the attack. It was also unclear why Van Dyke was transferred to the Connecticut prison, the report noted. There had been no incidents while Van Dyke was in an Illinois prison, though there had been some worries that he may be a target for other inmates given the notoriety of his case and his conviction for shooting McDonald 16 times.
