At Least 4 Hospitalized After Prison Incident

COLEMAN, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are reporting at least four people have been hospitalized after an incident at a federal prison in Florida northwest of Orlando.

The Orlando Regional Medical Center says four people have been hospitalized and they are expecting three others to be brought to the complex. It was not immediately clear whether inmates or prison officials were injured.

Lake-Sumter Emergency Medical Services also confirmed it had units at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex on Sunday, but would not say why they had been called to the facility. The prison has four units that house low-, medium- and high-security inmates.

Prison officials did not answer calls Sunday evening from The Associated Press.

A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons said she was gathering information.
