twin towers correctional building*As the result of a fight involving dozens of black and Latino inmates at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown Los Angeles, 4 people were hospitalized.

The brawl broke out at 12:10 p.m. Tuesday on the third floor of Tower One in a recreational area, L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told ABC7 news.

“It took our deputies about 90 seconds to stop this dust-up. It was along racial lines, Hispanic and African-American. We do not know what prompted it,” said Whitmore.

Whitmore said deputies used “sting-balls” and “clear-out” gas to end the altercation.

Four inmates were taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Other inmates were treated at Twin Towers and no deputies were injured, Whitmore said.

The incident was considered relatively minor.
