Kansas City, Kan., deputies shot, one dead

Posted June 18, 2018

Police say two Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies have been shot near the county courthouse in Kansas City, Kansas.

"It is very possible that with their own firearm they were both shot", Bailiff said.

Deputy Patrick Rohrer, 35, was taken to a hospital where he later died, the Kansas City police said.

One suspect was also shot and taken to an area hospital. The Associated Press reported that one sheriff's deputy had been killed and another was in critical condition. Their names have not been released, but police say officers recovered a gun from one of the deceased men.

Wyandotte County Sheriff spokeswoman Kelli Bailiff said the shooting happened at the Wyandotte County Correctional and Court Services building in Kansas City.

Authorities have identified the Wyandotte County sheriff's deputy who died Friday after he and another deputy were shot while transporting an inmate.

The shooting occurred outside the courthouse annex, near the area where inmates are transported.
