LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) - Lansing Correctional Facility’s maximum-security unit returned to normal operations after being on lockdown since Thursday.

Corrections spokesman Adam Pfannenstiel says normal operations returned Tuesday and visitation for inmates in the maximum custody unit also resumed.

The lockdown was imposed Thursday after different inmates attacked staff in what is believed to be four unrelated incidents.

Pfannenstiel says the staff members involved suffered only minor injuries.

He says an investigation to confirm the attacks were unrelated is continuing.
