The US federal prison system has been put into a total lockdown across the country after two people died in an outbreak of violence by the brutal MS-13 gang.

The move on Monday night came after a horrific attack on morning at USP Beaumont in Texas, according to the Associated Press.

Two inmates Guillermo Riojas and Andrew Pineda died in hospital of life-threatening injuries, according to Kfdm.com.

Two other inmates are receiving treatment in hospital.

The last time the Federal Bureau of Prisons issued an order for a lockdown of all American prisons was in April 2020 when coronavirus began to spread through cells across the nation.
