There are a total of 128 inmates housed in the unit involved.

He said that some of the same conditions that spawned the 2015 riot - overcrowding and lack of rehabilitation programs - still exist in the state prison system.

Prison officials placed the facility, located between Omaha and Lincoln, on lockdown after altercations between inmates. An unspecified number of inmates suffered injuries that weren't life-threatening, said Department of Correctional Services Director Scott Frakes.

The state Department of Corrections said Friday that 39-year-old Damon Fitzgerald and 31-year-old Michael Galindo died in the Thursday revolt at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution.

(Tecumseh) - Nebraska Department of Corrections officials confirm a fire is burning inside the Tecumseh State Prison.

Prison officials said the disturbance involved about 40 inmates.

The Nebraska State Patrol is leading the criminal investigation and the Nebraska State Fire Marshal is conducting the investigation into the fires. Team members discovered the two deaths.

As of now the prison still remains on lock down and visits are still not allowed at TSCI through Sunday unless otherwise announced, visits will resume on Monday, and a full report is expected in the next two or three weeks.

Gov. Pete Ricketts, who attended the news conference, called the loss of life tragic. He said, "I think we have to remember, prisons are unsafe places". "That's why they're in prison".

The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services reports the prison was placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon after almost 40 inmates refused to return to their housing unit.

"These deaths continue to be unacceptable, and we (the Legislature) will have to continue to monitor them", said state Sen.

"We are making progress, but this progress takes time", Watermeier said. All of the inmates are in the general population of the prison, but are being held in the highest security.

"That riot, which also left several staff members injured, involved several hundred inmates in three living units, a gym and a courtyard".
