HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) – A prison official says two of the five correctional officers who were hurt during a disturbance last week at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility remain off work Monday.
No details are being released as to the injuries, but authorities say no weapons were involved.
The Feb. 4 incident prompted a prison lockdown at the time and cancellation of last weekend’s visitation to its central unit.
The investigation is ongoing as to what sparked the melee that occurred during dinnertime as a group of inmates were leaving the chow hall.
About 20 inmates were placed in restrictive housing after the disturbance.
