Guards at the California state prison known as “New Folsom” put down a brief riot Wednesday that left 13 inmates hospitalized, including one shot by a correctional officer, prison officials said.

About 60 to 70 inmates were involved in the disturbance at California State Prison-Sacramento, said Lt. Tony Quinn, a penitentiary spokesman. Eight of those taken to the hospital had stab wounds, while a guard shot one inmate in the “hip or flank area,” Quinn said.

The disturbance broke out in an exercise yard for maximum-security inmates Wednesday morning, the state Department of Corrections said. No staff members were injured, and Quinn said order was restored within 10 minutes.
