Sheriff: 1 Kan. deputy killed, 1 critical in shooting

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

Two Wyandotte County Sheriff's deputies were likely shot Friday morning behind the county courthouse by an inmate who was being transferred, police said.

Major Kelli Bailiff, with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office, said the deputies were overcome and possibly shot with their own service weapon.

When they pulled into a parking lot outside the county courthouse, the deputies were "overcome", Bailiff said.

'It is very possible that with their own firearm they were both shot, ' Bailiff during an afternoon press conference.

One deputy, 35-year-old Patrick Rohrer, was killed.

In March 2015 Deputy Scott Wood was shot seven times including once in the head, as he tried to stop three people from robbing a Kansas City, Kansas, 7-Eleven gas station.

Their names have not yet been released by authorities, who are investigating how the shooting unfolded near the county courthouse in Kansas City, Kan. A third person, the suspect, was also shot.

One deputy has died at the hospital from his injuries and the other is in critical condition.

Kardashian West acknowledged that she has opposed Trump's policies in the past. Johnson said she believes it was God who brought Kardashian West to her aid.

Police say the shooting occurred as Rohrer and another deputy were transporting an inmate from the Wyandotte County jail to the court service building for a hearing.

Neither he nor Kansas City, Kansas, resident Jesse Ware saw the shooting happen. Officials said the other officer is a female.

Authorities are not looking for any other suspects in connection to the incident.

He said the shooting suspect was critically injured in the shooting and is now in surgery.

The Olathe Police Department, Raymore Police Department in Missouri and the Jackson County Sheriff's Officer in Missouri tweeted similar heartfelt messages.

The shooting happened before 11:20 a.m. Friday.

"Sending prayers to the officers, families and Wyandotte SO", the office said.
