Oregon prison ends lockdown after inmate shooting

The Associated Press

PENDLETON, Ore. — The Oregon prison where a prison guard shot and killed an inmate has returned to normal operations.

The state Department of Corrections said a lockdown has ended and visiting will resume Wednesday at the Eastern Oregon Correctional institution.

On Friday, authorities said, 26-year-old Jayson Matthew Withers of Salem died after he and another inmate wouldn’t stop their attack on a third prisoner, and a corrections officer shot Withers.

Withers had been in the prison since 2010 on negligent homicide, robbery and identity-theft convictions. He was due for release in four more years.

The State Police and the Umatilla County district attorney’s office are conducting an investigation.
