Part of Oklahoma prison locked down after fight, 2 hurt

The Associated Press - January 13, 2019 9:44 am

HOMINY, Okla. (AP) – Part of an Oklahoma prison has been locked down for the weekend after a fight that sent two inmates to hospitals.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections on Saturday tweeted that the K/M unit of the Dick Conner Correctional Center in Hominy was locked down until at least Monday.
Department spokesman Matt Elliott says a fight Saturday morning led to two inmates hospitalized with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Elliott had no immediate additional information on the injuries or what prompted the fight.
Elliott says no prison personnel were injured and that the lockdown was for the safety of inmates and staff.
The Dick Conner Correctional Center is a medium-security facility with capacity for nearly 1,200 men.
Hominy is 35 miles (56.32 kilometers) northwest of Tulsa.
