JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Corrections said in a facebook post, that Thursday nights rumors of another uprising at the Tipton Correctional Center are simply false reports.

The denial was posted just before 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

The announcement goes on to say that all staff and offenders are safe at the facility.

The Tipton Correctional Center is still on modified lockdown after a disturbance by inmates damaged two housing units last week.
