Order has been restored at Holman following fight, fire

Order has been restored hours after an altercation between inmates occurred inside one of the dorms in the William C. Holman Correctional Facility Monday afternoon.

According to the Alabama Department of Corrections, the dorm was secured after a Correctional Emergency Response Team (CERT) entered the dorm at 9:45 p.m. Monday without meeting any resistance from the inmates, six hours after some inmates received stab wounds from a fight.

“Inmates were cooperative and the situation was resolved without the use of force or further incident,” ADOC Public Information Manager Bob Horton said. “The prison was placed on lockdown earlier (Monday afternoon) following an altercation between a group of inmates housed in the dorm.”
