Kansas City, Kansas, police say 35-year-old Patrick Rohrer died at the Kansas Medical Center from his injuries.

"We are praying for our friends at the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office, their families, friends and our entire blue family". Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line each and every day to protect the public and their selfless service deserves our hightest honor. King was a 13-year veteran of the department.

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

The suspect is in the operating room at the same hospital, Zeigler said.

Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith says the "incidents unfolded protecting other citizens". The investigation into the shooting is continuing. "This is a courthouse building, there is video".

It is unclear whether one of the deputies shot the suspect or whether a third deputy stepped in to shoot the suspect.

The inmate was being transported across the street from the jail to the services building for a court hearing, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Maj.

Additional information was not released.

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

The deputies were attacked by an inmate while driving a transport vehicle near the Wyandotte County courthouse in Kansas City.

However, he was still going through the Wyandotte County Court system due to previous pending charges for a carjacking and witness intimidation in KCK. The suspect was also shot during the incident and taken to a local hospital.

Both Rohrer and the other deputy were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Bailiff said it's possible the deputies were overcome with their own weapons.

The Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department is investigating the shooting, and said that the deputies were wearing body cameras and there were lots of cameras in the gated area behind the courthouse, where two detainees were being transferred back into a van. Police Officer Zac Blair said authorities are reviewing surveillance video.
