GULFPORT, Miss. One inmate had his jaw broken and a dozen others found themselves on lockdown following a series of what appears to be gang-related attacks at the Harrison County jail late Thursday night.

But despite talk circulating Friday among the legal community, Warden Don Cabana said officials don't believe the attacks were racially motivated. All of the dozen or so men that officers believe were the aggressors are black. The roughly one dozen victims of attacks are white. The warden said he believes one explanation could be that gang members simply attacked non-gang members for intimidation.
