The death of two inmates sparked a lockdown Sunday at a federal prison in Victorville. Foul play is suspected, officials said.

The inmates died late Saturday and the FBI is investigating their deaths as homicides, prison spokesman James Engleman said.

No prison workers were harmed.

The prison, which houses 1,300 prisoners, is one of four facilities at a federal correctional complex in Victorville.
