PRISON IN­MATES IN STER­LING AT­TACK OF­FI­CERS

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - — Kirk Mitchell, The Den­ver Post

The Ster­ling Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity was on lock­down Wed­nes­day after mul­ti­ple in­mates at­tacked four cor­rec­tional of­fi­cers, who suf­fered fa­cial frac­tures and punc­tured eardrums.

The melee broke out Tues­day in the prison’s din­ing hall, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease by Mark Fair­bairn, spokesman for the Colorado De­part­ment of Cor­rec­tions.

Staff mem­bers were ex­am­ined and emer­gency treat­ment was ad­min­is­tered by on-duty med­i­cal per­son­nel. The in­jured of­fi­cers were taken to a hos­pi­tal by am­bu­lance and other staff.

The cor­rec­tions de­part­ment has re­leased few de­tails. It’s not clear how many in­mates were in­volved, if any of the of­fend­ers were in­jured or how long the at­tack lasted.
