SAN DIEGO -- It took the efforts of no fewer than five guards and blasts of tear gas to halt a racially motivated riot Tuesday at Donovan Sate Prison that left several inmates and one guard injured.


Guards said as many as 150 inmates were involved in the riot, which erupted between black and white prisoners in an exercise yard. Eight of the inmates were armed with handmade knives, also known as shanks.


Reportedly between five and eight guards tried to stop the riot. They reportedly shot repeated rounds of tear gas, eventually dispersing the fight.

Four inmates were stabbed and one guard was also injured, according to prison officials. The extent of the guard's injuries is still unknown.

A guard involved in the brawl who spoke with NBC 7/39 said he is not surprised the riot broke out. He said the prison was on lockdown prior to Tuesday's uprising because of racially motivated incidents.

The guard said the prison is vastly understaffed because of budget cuts, and that more guards are needed in order to make Donovan a safe facility.
