Three Cook County Jail inmates are facing charges of attempted murder after footage surfaced showing them assaulting two guards, the Chicago Tribune reports.
David Bush, 19, Terrence Lynom, 21, and Taiwan McNeal, 20, each face charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a law enforcement officer, aggravated battery and mob action.
In footage, a guard can be seen pushing McNeal who was allegedly attempting to get in the recreation room. McNeal can be seen putting his hands up in surrender.
Bush and Lynom then confront the guards in defense of McNeal. All three inmates then violently beat the two guards.
One guard reportedly suffered severe injuries, including fractures to his eye socket and nose. The second guard suffered a loss of consciousness and a concussion.
All three inmates have already been in jail for at least two years.
Bush and McNeal are charged with the attempted murder of an off-duty police officer in 2015. Lynom is accused of shooting a 6-year-old girl and her 52-year-old aunt during an outdoor party in 2013. The girl was critically injured in the shooting incident.
