WALLA WALLA, Wash. (AP) — Two more units at the Washington State Penitentiary in Walla Walla have been locked down because of a fight.
The disturbance escalated to include more than 20 inmates Monday. The prison said in a statement that three officers reported injuries and are being evaluated. No inmates suffered serious injuries.
The cause of the fight is being investigated.
Two other units remain under lockdown following a fight last week that involved nearly 50 inmates. One of those units is expected to return to normal operations on Tuesday.
