Eleven inmates at Brockbridge Correctional Facility required medical attention after a fight broke out at the prison.

The Jessup, Md., prison was placed on lockdown last night after a brawl in which several inmates suffered stab wounds. None of the inmates suffered life-threatening injuries, though seven inmates required outside medical care. Four inmates were treated by medical personnel onsite.

The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services is investigating the cause of a brawl at the Jessup, Md., prison. Visits have been canceled for the remainder of the week, and some inmates have been transferred to other facilities.
