PONTIAC, Ill. (AP) – Things got out of control Sunday night at the Pontiac Correctional Center. An Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman says six officers were hurt by inmates at the prison.

The guards were treated for injuries that are not life-threatening. A DOC spokeswoman says the officers were hurt in “an assault involving five offenders.”

She didn’t say what type of injuries the officers suffered or what led to the attack.
