According to Adams County Sheriff Chuck Mayfield, the Adams County Correctional Facility has gained total control of the incident that ensued approximately at 2:40 Sunday afternoon.
“At one time, I know that at least 24 or 25 hostages were being held. However, now all employees are out safely,” Sheriff Mayfield said.
“Right now, we have three inmate injuries that were probably sustained from other inmates – one being a stab wound, concussion and rib injuries,” Sheriff Mayfield added. “There were no escapes.”
Sheriff Mayfield and Adams County deputies will be on site at CCA for a few more hours.
