Today in history
On this day in 1971, prisoners riot and seize control of the maximum-security Attica Correctional Facility near Buffalo, New York.
Later that day, state police retook most of the prison, but 1,281 convicts occupied an exercise field called D Yard, where they held 39 prison guards and employees hostage for four days.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Today — Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the lower to mid 90s.
Tonight — Partly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the mid to upper 50s.
