Warm Springs Correctional Center remained locked down Wednesday following a fight between rival gangs.

The fight occurred Tuesday afternoon in Housing Unit 4 at the prison, which is located just east of the old, now closed Nevada State Prison on Fifth Street.

Deputy Director of Corrections E.K. McDaniel said one inmate was transported by Care Flight to Renown Medical Center in Reno for treatment of multiple stab wounds to the upper body. He was listed in stable condition.

A second inmate was transported to Carson Tahoe Hospital with minor injuries suffered during the fight.

McDaniel said the institution remains on “controlled movement” pending the results of the investigation into the fight.
