EL DORADO, Kan. (KAKE) -
Emergency logs on the day of an uprising incident at El Dorado Correctional Facility, obtained by KAKE News, show the inmates involved did possess some type of weapons when they defied the orders of guards to return to their cells.
A source said that the trigger for the chaos was when shower access was taken away.
The logs reveal that, among other things, multiple inmates were fighting in the West Yard at 12:07pm on June 29, and that one of them nearby had a weapon.
There was heavy damage to several areas of the prison that day, though the Department of Corrections said no one was injured.
