The Minnesota Department of Corrections says the lockdown at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Faribault has ended.

The lockdown began around 5:20pm on Tuesday night and lasted until about 7:00pm Wednesday evening.

The prison consists of a medium-security facility and a minimum-security unit outside the secured perimeter. The prison has a combined population of more than 2,000 men.

KSTP-TV reported earlier that the lockdown was in effect due to an ongoing investigation. Details about the nature of that investigation were not provided.
