Tucker Maximum Security Unit, Tucker, Arkansas
July 22, 2017

Three prisoners attack guards while they are attempting to handcuff another prisoner. Then “at least three prisoners” escaped from individual holding units in a recreation area. Corrections officers fire “warning shots” with live ammunition in order to regain control.

Two weeks later, prisoners overpower guards and stage an uprising.
