An inmate was taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries after several separate incidents at the Nebraska State Penitentiary on Saturday morning, according to the Nebraska Department of Corrections.

There are no reported injuries to staff members after inmates initially refused to return to two living units. The facility was secured, and at least two housing units will be on modified operations through the weekend.

All visits to the facility have been canceled for Saturday and Sunday.
