One deputy killed, another in critical condition in Kansas City, Kansas

One of two Kansas officers shot during inmate transport dies

Rohrer had been on the force for seven years, the Wyandotte County Sheriff's office said.

Police on Friday identified the woman as Ashley Fulkerson of Kansas City. King was a 13-year veteran of the department.

The injured female deputy underwent surgery.

The shooting is under investigation. Police Capt. Lionel Colón says Fulkerson had barricaded herself in a shed after she was seen outside with a sword. The courthouse is located at 710 N. 7th Street.

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer responded to the shooting Friday afternoon.

Additional information was not released.

He continued, saying, "Ruth and I will be praying for the victims and their families, as well as all our law enforcement officers and other first responders as we come together as a community to mourn this horrific tragedy".

She said there is no other danger to the public.

The investigation is being handled by the Kansas City Police Department.

One Wyandotte County Sheriff's deputy has died and another is in critical condition following a shooting late Friday morning.

However, although he was put in the Jackson County Jail for the 2017 murder, Fielder was still going through the Wyandotte County Court system due to previous charges for carjacking.

A juvenile was also shot, Birch said, and taken to a hospital. The Associated Press reported that one sheriff's deputy had been killed and another was in critical condition. They say, the inmate somehow overcame the two deputies and may have shot them with their own service weapon.

KCK police are reviewing several surveillance cameras that may have captured the incident.

Wyandotte County sheriff's spokeswoman Maj Kelli Bailiff said the suspect was also wounded in the shooting that took place outside the Wyandotte County courthouse shortly after 11am Friday morning.

Police Officer Zac Blair says the shooting happened Friday. All three were transported to the University of Kansas Hospital.

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