Kansas sheriff's deputies shot near courthouse

Moments later, the Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies were shot by one of the inmates. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. Rohrer had been on the force for seven years, the Wyandotte County Sheriff's office said.

Deputy Theresa King, 44, was also killed. She is in critical condition.

Two sheriff's deputies were shot near a courthouse Friday in Kansas City, Kansas, reported CBS News.

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

Lt. Kelli Bailiff with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office told KCTV the deputies were transporting inmates for court hearings when they were shot.

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

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

Zeigler said both deputies were taken to KU Med Center for treatment.

Another Wyandotte County deputy who was shot is in critical condition at the University of Kansas Hospital, according to officials.

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer released a statement Friday saying he was deeply saddened to learn of the shooting, and said he and his wife Ruth will be praying for the deputies and their families. The prosecution chose to try the case for the second time, but the trial again ended in a hung jury. Fielder is awaiting that third trial.

Neither he nor Kansas City, Kansas, resident Jesse Ware saw the shooting happen. Prosecutors alleged that threats to witnesses contributed to two hung juries in a 2015 murder case. He was then placed in the Jackson County Jail.

However, he was still going through the Wyandotte County Court system due to previous pending charges for a carjacking and witness intimidation in KCK.

Details on the identity of the suspect have yet to be released.
