19 Injured in Fight at US Arizona Prison
An Arizona prison complex remains on lockdown after a fight broke out among 400 inmates, a report said.
State Department of Corrections spokesman Bill Lamoreaux said the staff quickly stopped the fight that broke out Sunday morning at a minimum-security unit of the Arizona State Prison Complex in Tucson, AP reported.
Lamoreaux said two staffers suffered minor injuries and 17 inmates were taken to area hospitals with injuries. The extent of the inmates’ injuries wasn’t immediately available.
The prison is investigating the cause of the fight, which broke out in the Whetstone Unit. Nearly 1,250 prisoners are housed in that unit.
