Inmate shot during fight at US prison in Indiana

Associated Press

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — Officials at a federal prison in western Indiana say two inmates were injured when guards opened fire while breaking up a fight at the prison's recreation yard.

The U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute says both inmates were sent to hospitals Thursday morning, and one had sustained a gunshot wound.

The prison is about 70 miles west of Indianapolis and was placed on lockdown.

Prison spokeswoman Hattie Sims says no guards were injured.
