Inmate kills two Kansas deputies escorting him to court, authorities say

Fellow deputy Patrick Rohrer died Friday afternoon.

'Our hearts break for our brothers and sisters at Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office as well as for the loved ones of the deputies shot today, one of whom has died.

Kansas City, Kansas, police confirmed that 44-year-old Deputy Theresa King died early Saturday from injuries suffered when an inmate overpowered the two deputies. Pictures taken by local media show the white van, its doors wide open, parked in a gated portion of the parking lot and surrounded with yellow evidence markers.

A second Kansas sheriff's deputy died on Saturday after being shot during a fight with a prisoner who was being taken from jail to court for a hearing in Kansas City, police said. It's unclear if there were other inmates inside the van. Authorities aren't looking for any other suspects, Blair added.

Colón says he's "very confident it was a last-resort situation to ensure the safety of the public".

Koelsch says the Lyon County Sheriff's Office studies violent incidents against law enforcement nationwide so staffers can stay as safe as possible.

King, 44, had served 13 years. "They did it each and every day that they stepped out into their community", Mayor David Alvey said.

Evidence markers dot the pavement just outside the Wyandotte County Courthouse in Kansas City, Kan.

Details remain sketchy about what happened, but somehow the deputies were overcome by one of the inmates and shot.

He held a moment of silence for the deputies after he finished his speech at the event. Video cameras on the building have footage that will be reviewed, and all Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies also have body cameras. Both had families; King had two grown children and a young daughter and Rohrer had two young children.
