BALTIMORE COUNTY (WJZ) — Eight correctional officers and six detainees were injured Sunday night at the Baltimore Pre-Trial Complex.

Officials say the incident occurred at 10 p.m. Sunday when detainees refused to be locked into their dorms after an argument between an officer and detainee.

The detainees reportedly attacked the officers and some fellow detainees before barricading themselves in the dorms.

Officers from surrounding facilities helped end the blockade.

The officers and three detainees were taken to the hospital, treated and released.

The two affected dorms remain on lockdown while the investigation continues.
