Corrections Officer Joseph Ribeiro responded to a fight between two inmates in one of the medium security housing units at MCI Shirley. The fight was immediately broken up without incident by seven responding officers, including Officer Ribeiro. The inmates were then brought to the Health Services Unit for an examination and any necessary treatment.

Officer Ribeiro was part of a two man team that had escorted one of the inmates to the HSU when he suddenly collapsed on the floor. CPR was initiated by medical staff and an ambulance called. After transport, Officer Ribeiro was pronounced dead at Deaconess Nashoba Hospital at 10:30 pm.

Officer Ribeiro had served with the Massachusetts Department of Correction for seven years.
