Multiple media outlets are reporting that a riot at an Oklahoma prison is now over and inmates are back in their cells.

State corrections officers, including some from Lawton, had been working early Monday to stop it. We sent you the alert Sunday night on your 7News App about what Town of Hinton officials were calling a "situation" at the Great Plains Correctional Facility. 
It's run by GEO. Still no official word from the Department of Corrections Monday morning, but the Caddo County Sheriff's Office says about 250 to 300 inmates took to the yard and refused to go back inside the prison Sunday night.

Hinton officials say a response team from GEO Lawton arrived overnight to help, but no further updates have been reported. This prison reopened in 2014 and holds about 19-hundred federal prisoners.

ORIGINAL STORY

Officials are saying a "situation" has occurred at the Great Plains Correctional Facility in Hinton, Oklahoma.

Details are sketchy and we have not been able to get information from officials as of Sunday night at 10 p.m.

The official Facebook page of the Town of Hinton confirmed a situation but did not go into details. They did say the perimeter of the prison has not been breached.

Stay with 7News as we work to find more details on the situation.
