A section of the Utah State Prison will be on lockdown through the weekend following an apparent stabbing.

The victim was transported to University Hospital for treatment and was back in a maximum security cell Friday evening. Welling had no information on the other person involved.
All four units at Oquirrh are on lockdown while investigators complete an investigation. Visitors will not be allowed, Welling said.
