|By reviewjournal.com- Katelyn Newberg|
Two state prisons were locked down following “safety concerns” and “threats to staff,” the Department of Corrections said Thursday.
The concerns came from staff at High Desert State Prison, about 35 miles northwest of Las Vegas, and at Ely State Prison in White Pine County, department of corrections spokesman Scott Kelley said in an emailed statement.
The lockdowns were set to continue until “the threats to staff have been eliminated,” Kelley said; he did not elaborate on what the threats were.
