The Oklahoma Department of Corrections released the names of the inmates killed and wounded in a altercation at the private prison in Cushing Saturday afternoon.

Prison officials says the disturbance lasted less than two minutes, but took over 30 minutes for prison staff to secure the Cimarron Correctional Facility.

On Sunday, 31-year-old Anthony Fulwilder died from injuries he sustained in the altercation.   Three others, Michael Mayden 26, out of Oklahoma County; Kyle Tiffee, 23, serving time out of McClain, Oklahoma and Cleveland counties; and 29-year-old Christopher Tignor, serving time out of LeFlore and Oklahoma counties, died on Saturday.  

One of the inmates wounded Saturday was Jesse Hood, 31, out of Tulsa County. Hood along with Jared Cruce, 34, out of LeFlore County and  Cordell Johnson, 28, out of Kay County remain in the hospital.

This was the second riot at the facility this year. That other riot was back in June.  No one died, but a dozen inmates went to the hospital.
