At least four inmates were reportedly injured after a fight broke out at a penitentiary in Beaumont, Texas.
Prison officials say that a fight broke out in a housing unit at the U.S. Federal Penitentiary earlier this morning. Staff were able to respond and break up the brawl quickly, however the four injured inmates needed to be taken to an outside medical examiner following the fight.
Staff secured the inmates in their housing units and the prison was placed on a limited operational status officials said. An investigation is underway.
