CROWLEY, Colo. (AP) – A female kitchen employee was killed and another was seriously injured Monday in an assault involving an inmate while breakfast was being prepared at a state prison in southeast Colorado, a spokeswoman said.

The inmate was subdued, and the Arkansas Valley Correctional Facility in Crowley was put on lockdown, said Alison Morgan, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Corrections. The prison 45 miles east of Pueblo houses about 1,000 male prisoners.

Sgt. Lori Gann was listed in critical condition Monday at a hospital in Pueblo, Morgan said. She has worked for the Department of Corrections since March 2009.

The names of the other victim and the inmate weren’t immediately released.
