Multiple injured in riot at Donovan State Prison

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Cal Fire medics were sent to Donovan State Prison Friday night to tend to patients injured in a riot in progress reported at the facility.

Medics were sent to the prison at 480 Alta Road in Otay Mesa just before 9 p.m.

At least five people were injured as of 9 p.m., according to Cal Fire.

A riot involving nearly 50 inmates at the facility in February left 10 prisoners wounded, including one so severely that he had to be life-flighted from the prison.

No other information is available at this time as the story is still developing.
