Oklahoma prisons on lockdown after inmate death, fights
 
I just read on Facebook that a lot of Oklahoma prisons are in lockdown because of fights and an inmate died. I don't know anymore information about it or if it's true.

It's true. It's all of the prisons. not just a lot of them. Gang violence broke out at 6 different yards over the weekend.

How awful! I hope it settles down and they come off lockdown asap :(

Here is an article I've found:

Oklahoma prisons on lockdown after inmate death, fights

Oklahoma correctional facilities were on lockdown Sunday in an official response to several inmate fights at six prisons over the weekend, according to state officials.

One inmate was reported dead after a fight Sunday at the Dick Conners Correctional Center in Hominy. More than a dozen inmates with non-life threatening injuries were sent to area hospitals for treatment.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oct. 3, 2019
CORRECTED: ODOC returns minimum-security prisons to normal daytime operations; reinstates visitation at those facilities

OKLAHOMA CITY – As the Oklahoma Department of Corrections continues its response to the fights more than two weeks ago that left 36 inmates injured and one dead, the agency has returned nine minimum-security prisons, four minimum units and the state’s only medium-security women’s prison to normal daytime operations.
Visitation is also reinstated at those facilities starting this weekend - as well as all community corrections centers in the state.

These changes affect the following prisons:

Eddie Warrior Correctional Center

Mabel Bassett Correctional Center

Kate Barnard Correctional Center

Jackie Brannon Correctional Center

Jess Dunn Correctional Center

Jim E. Hamilton Correctional Center

Bill Johnson Correctional Center

John Lilley Correctional Center

Howard McLeod Correctional Center

William S. Key Correctional Center

Dick Conner Correctional Center Minimum-Security Unit

Mack Alford Correctional Center Minimum-Security Unit

James Crabtree Correctional Center Minimum-Security Unit

Lexington Assessment & Reception Center Minimum-Security Unit

The facilities have resumed normal operations from approximately 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day, and enter controlled movement at night.
From 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., the facilities are under controlled movement, which allows greater inmate freedom of movement on prison grounds than lockdown while also helping staff limit inmate activity to prevent violence.
The remaining state facilities not mentioned above are still locked down until further notice to protect staff and inmates. Visitation is also not reinstated at those facilities.
This move comes after ODOC initiated a statewide lockdown Sept. 15 in response to gang-related fights at six prisons. The state locked down the institutions to keep the violence from spreading, and no further incidents related to the gang dispute have taken place since.
If any disturbance arises at these facilities or any other, ODOC reserves the right to return the statewide lockdown to keep inmates and staff safe.
