Prison standoff comes to a tragic end after lasting all day and night.

Upsetting details below.

According to Esquire- The standoff at a Delaware prison ended Thursday morning after police stormed the facility, where, according to Fox News, they rescued one prison worker and found another one unresponsive. He was later pronounced dead. The rescued worker is alert and talking, The Associated Press said, and the prison is now fully secure.

Early on Thursday morning authorities were negotiating the release of two prison guards from James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna, Delaware, where inmates seized control of a building on Wednesday and took hostages, including four prison employees and dozens of fellow inmates.

Two of the prison workers had been released as well as 46 inmates, according to Fox News. Before the standoff ended, 82 inmates remained inside the building.

The tense situation began around 10:30 am on Wednesday when inmates took control of one building, Fox News reported. The building houses between 120 and 150 people.

Initial reports said inmates had taken five prison employees hostages, but that was later changed to four. One worker was released roughly four hours after the standoff began. A second employee was set free shortly before 8 p.m.

Earlier, an inmate at the prison who claimed to be a hostage called The News Journal newspaper on Wednesday afternoon and said one guard had been stabbed.
