UPDATE - 3:15PM - One inmate was transported to Renown with stab wounds to the upper body, according to Nevada Department of Corrections. That inmate is said to be in stable condition. The other inmate involved was also transported for minor injuries.

Though no longer on lock down, the Department says they are still on "controlled movement" until further notice.

First off, to the uneducated reporters, please be better at your reporting and investigations than say Yahoo! news? First mistake, there's a difference between a jail and a prison. You can't have a jail fight in a prison...complete oxymoron. Second mistake, there are no "guards" in Nevada prisons. By Nevada Revised Statues, there are only Category III peace officers preventing inmates from escaping into the community. I expect a cut from your salary for doing your job for you.
