ADOC: Order restored at Holman Correctional Facility after 2nd incident

(WAFF) -

Law enforcement agencies responded to an incident at Holman Correctional Facility in Escambia County.

A spokesperson from the governor's office said there was a situation, but did not go into further details.

According to an Alabama Department of Corrections release, an assault occurred at 8:30 a.m. in a prison dormitory when one inmate attacked another with a makeshift weapon.

The injured inmate's wounds are not life-threatening.

When officers responded, they were met with resistance. Prisoners became aggressive and barricaded themselves in the dorm. Officers have secured all sections of the prison to prevent the inmates in the dorm from entering other parts of the facility.

Officials said about 70 inmates are in the dorm. No officers or other inmates were injured.

A Correctional Emergency Response Team has been sent to the prison. Officials said there was no imminent danger to prison staff, corrections officers, or inmates secured in other areas of the facility.

ADOC officials said that order was restored to the dorm at approximately 2:45 p.m. They said the inmates responsible for today's disturbance were detained and moved to segregation.

The prison remains in lockdown mode.

Holman was the site of an incident late Friday night in which a correctional officer and the prison warden were stabbed. ADOC officials said inmates had attempted to gain control of the same dormitory in Friday's incident.
