Default Ware prison on lockdown after "incident"

Last night there was an "incident" at Ware Prison near Waycross. It is reported that several prisoners & a couple of guards had "minor" injuries after a riot broke out. There is supposed to be a video of a Facebook live stream of injured people & people giving comments of what happened.
The Fox News site has more in depth writing but the 1st 11alive link has some video. According to Fox there were gunshot wounds as well as stabbing. I wonder who had the guns to shoot. We all know cellphones get smuggled in but Fox identified one of the prisoners who shared details. You know he won't be getting treated as a hero for that.
Ware is a closed security prison & has 1546 people incarcerated there. They are also a SO release site.
Close security typically fall in one or more categories: escape risk, assault history, deemed dangerous or detainers for other serious crimes.
This is the same prison where 2 prisoners had an altercation & 1 died just 2 weeks ago.
