Multiple ambulances respond to fight at GEO Prison

LAWTON, Okla. – A huge fight at Lawton's GEO Prison has left a number of people injured.  It happened around 4:30 p.m., at least 15 people are injured, six of which have been taken to the hospital. The prison is on lockdown.

A 7News crew has seen three ambulances leave the prison.  There is a fourth still parked outside.  We are not sure how many people were involved in the fight or where it took place.  But police suspect the fight was gang-related.

Sheriff's deputies' cars are there and the prison's security guards are keeping our crew outside the entrance.  We are trying to get information from Sheriff Ken Stradley, on what exactly happened.

Count on 7News to bring you new information as soon as we get it.
