Prison Riot at Susanville, Prison Town USA

By  

A prison riot started Saturday, at the High Desert State Prison in Susanville, California. The riot reportedly resulted in several prisoners being sent to local hospitals in California and Reno, Nevada.

KOLO8 TV in Reno reported that "The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says about 75 prisoners, predominantly black and hispanic, were involved in the clash."

The Department reported the injuries were stab wounds, but unsubstantiated reports said at least one inmate was shot.

It is not yet known why the riot started or if it was gang-related. Apparently there have been multiple riots within the past few weeks.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website has not yet reported the incident.

Susanville was labeled "Prison Town USA" by a recent 75-minute documentary, shown on PBS, because it is home to three prisons and a jail. Susanville is approximately 85 miles north west of Reno, on highway 395.
