Kansas sheriff’s deputy dead, 1 in critical condition after shooting near courthouse

Three people are dead after a pair of officer-involved shootings in Kansas City on Thursday

An inmate fatally shot one sheriff's deputy and critically injured another outside a courthouse in Kansas City Friday morning.

It's very possible the deputies were attacked with their own guns, Bailiff said.

One Kansas sheriff's deputy was killed and another is in critical condition following a shooting near a courthouse in Kansas City on Friday.

The shooting is under investigation by the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department, Bailiff said, and more information likely will be available Saturday.

KCKPD Chief Terry Zeigler said police were not looking for any other suspects.

One of them said he heard gunfire, looked outside, and heard a woman screaming that her husband had been shot.

Both Rohrer and the unidentified officer were transported to the University of Kansas Medical Center, where Rohrer later died.

Two Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office deputies and a suspect were shot outside the county courthouse on Friday, leading to the death of both deputies.

Deputy Theresa King, 44, was also killed.

The suspect in the case was shot and was in surgery at KU Hospital, according to officials.

"Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line each and every day to protect the public and their selfless service deserves our highest honor", he said.

The deputies haven't been identified yet, but we know a male deputy died and a female deputy is in critical condition. Police plan to review video of the incident to determine what happened.

"We gather here today with so many emotions coursing through our guts", Alvey said, noting that some of those are "feelings of anger and revenge toward the assailant".

Several law enforcement departments offered words of support and prayers for Wyandotte County on social media.

The shooting is believed to have happened in the gated parking lot behind the court services building.

Fielder was charged again two months ago for a second murder in 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri.
