Kern Valley State Prison inmate convicted for deadly 2015 fight

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - An inmate has been found guilty for a fight that ended with a deadly officer-involved shooting at Kern Valley State Prison.

Authorities say Josue Jacobs attacked another inmate with Jose Herrera at the prison back in 2015. An officer shot and killed Herrera to break up the fight, while Jacobs' victim survived the attack. 

Jacobs was charged with attempted murder, but the jury mistrialed on that charge. Instead, he was found guilty for assault on a person with great bodily harm.
