3 dead, 5 injured in Oklahoma Prison fight
« on: September 13, 2015, 04:12:10 PM »

Three inmates are dead and five are injured, following a disturbance at a correctional facility Oklahoma on Saturday. The prison was placed on lockdown and inmates confined to their housing areas. The facility about 50 miles southwest of Tulsa in northeast Oklahoma houses medium- and maximum-security male inmates for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

The 40-minute disturbance at Cimarron Correctional Facility was 'quelled' by staff around 4.40pm local time (11:40 BST). Facility staff members were hurt, according to Steve Owen of Nashville, Tennessee-based Corrections Corporation of America.

The injured inmates were taken to hospital for treatment. The cause of their injuries remain unclear. The names of the dead and hurt inmates have not been released, but the families of those killed have been contacted.

The disturbance occurred in one housing pod, and the prison was placed on lockdown, leaving inmates confined to their housing areas on Saturday. Owen said that law enforcement and prison management are investigating the incident.

Around 180 prisoners are considered "maximum security" prisoners at the Cimarron facility, meaning that they are an escape risk or convicted of a particularly heinous crime, or both. Whether the brawl occurred in a maximum security housing pod is still not known.
