A lockdown was lifted Wednesday morning for most of the Jefferson City Correctional Center following a fight among inmates.

The incident involved about 25 inmates who were using the yard on Tuesday, according to the Missouri Department of Corrections. A spokeswoman said two JCCC staff members were hurt during the incident and one was treated for the injuries at a local medical center.

Four inmates also had injuries requiring outside treatment and several were treated on-site for minor injuries, spokeswoman Karen Pojmann said. Two housing units were still on lockdown Wednesday, Pojmann said.
