The inmates at a Delaware prison appear to have broken out of their cells and have taken over a building, taking all the guards hostage.
The Gateway Pundit reported that emergency vehicles have been seen pouring into the Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna, and helicopters were also seen swirling overhead.
Rep. William Carson, a member of the House Corrections Committee, was told that a “hostage situation is underway.”
“The inmates have taken over a building,” he said ominously.
All state prisons in Delaware are on lockdown at this time.
