Warden: Prison Inmate Attempts to Take Employee Hostage

There is an investigation underway, after police say an inmate at Chippewa Correctional Facility in Kincheloe tried taking a prison employee hostage. It happened yesterday, Monday, morning. The warden says the man, armed with homemade weapons, blocked the worker in an office. That worker activated an alarm and within seconds, other employees came to help. Eleven people got hurt while trying to break into the office and get the man under control. He was there serving a life sentence. Police are still investigating and so far there are no additional charges against the man. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details.
