[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.8494]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Reports Friday night from the state prison said one inmate had been killed by gunfire and that an estimated 40 persons had been injured or wounded. There was no immediate confirmation of the report from the governor's office but a spokesman at the McAlester General Hospital said, "We have many, many patients over here from there." There also were reports that at least one other guard had been injured. Shouting convicts armed with knives and meat cleavers wounded two guards, seized a dozen hostages and set fire to much of the industrial area Friday as Oklahoma's maximum security prison erupted into rioting. Deputy Warden Sam Johnston was among the hostages being held in the prison mess hall and there were reports from the inside the walls that more persons may have been wounded or injured when more inmates joined the original half dozen convicts who set off the violence. Smoke billowed from at least a dozen buildings in the prison industrail area and from outside the walls where hundreds of law enforcement officers surrounded the area it appeared the whole area was ablaze. A volley of shots was reported heard shortlu after the rioting broke out at mid-afternoon and it later was reported that at least one convict had been wounded by the shots.

Mrs. Kimmel said "everybody that comes in (to the restaurant) is very concerned" about the outbreak. "My cook's son-in-law is a guard out there," she added. Mrs. Bill Slover, who lives about 10 miles from the prison, said she drovwe within one block of the peniteniary when she came home from work....Buster Lewis, whose home is about 1 1/2 miles fromthe prison as the "crow flies," had just returned from watching the fiery spectacle. He said the roads have been blocked-off "so you can't get too close." Lewis estimated that several hundred residents had gathered around the installation. He said he had heard a report of one shot being fired during the altercation in which prisoners took a reported 12 hostages......Helen Johnson agreed with Davis. She had heard the prisoners were negotiating with the prison warden. She was enroute from Oklahoma City to he home northwest of here when she ran into a tabgle of cars near the prison.
