    All Delaware prisons have been placed on lockdown after reports of an emergency situation at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna. The state Department of Corrections said the incident involves inmates taking guards hostage.

    Rep. William Carson, a member of the Delaware House Corrections Committee, said he had been told it was an “apparent hostage situation.”
    “The inmates have taken over a building,” he said to Dalaware News Journal.

    Department of Corrections spokeswoman Jayme Gravell told the News Journal that state police and DOC response teams were called in to deal with the hostage situation.

    This is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public, Gravell said, noting that a statewide lockdown was DOC policy.

  • TWO hostage prison guards are released and two continue to be held by inmates at a Delaware prison in violent protest convicts are blaming on TRUMP

    Inmates inside a Delaware prison where two prison guards were still being held hostage spoke to a local newspaper to explain their concerns and cited President Donald Trump as a reason for taking over the facility. The hostage situation drew dozens of officers and law enforcement vehicles to the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna and prompted a statewide lockdown of all prisons. Two hostage were released Wednesday afternoon, but two remained in custody and negotiations were ongoing as the evening stretched on, authorities said.

    Authorities believe the takeover began around 10.30am yesterday when a prison officer inside Building C called for back-up. 

    According to Sergeant Richard Bratz of Delaware State Police, there are more than 100 inmates housed in Building C.  

    Other officers responded to help, and five Department of Corrections employees were taken hostage.

    Later in the afternoon, prisoners contacted their local newspaper, The News Journal in Wilmington with the help of one inmate's fiancée and another person's mother. The mother told the paper her son was among the hostages.

    In that call, an inmate said their reasons 'for doing what we're doing' included 'Donald Trump. Everything that he did. All the things that he's doing now. We know that the institution is going to change for the worse.'
