EDDYVILLE, KY -

The Kentucky Department of Corrections says the Kentucky State Penitentiary is on lockdown after five correctional officers were assaulted.

Four incidents over the last few days lead to two officers having to receive outside medical treatment. They were discharged and returned to work. The other officers did not seek medical attention.

All of the assaults are under investigation by the internal affairs staff at the Kentucky State Penitentiary. The prison is expected to return to its regular operating schedule on Tuesday.
