Members of the Johnson County Sheriff's Department stand outside the the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution Monday, May 11, 2015, in Tecomseh, Neb. Inmates at the maximum security prison in southeastern Nebraska have taken control of at least part of the facility in an incident that left two staff members and two prisoners injured, according to the state Department of Correctional Services. The incident started around 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution when staff members attempted to break up a large gathering of inmates in front of a housing unit, James Foster, a department spokesman, said in a statement. There was no indication early Monday that authorities have resumed full control at the facility that houses 11 death row inmates, and there were no reports of any escapes. (AP Photo/Anna Gronewold)
