The shootings all happened Thursday afternoon.

Several law enforcement departments offered words of support and prayers for Wyandotte County on social media. He was 35 years old and had seven years of service. A male deputy died from his injuries. King was a 13-year veteran of the department.

The deputies haven't been identified yet, but we know a male deputy died and a female deputy is in critical condition. She is in critical condition.

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

Police said no other suspects were being sought.

The shooting is under investigation. "This is a courthouse building, there is video".

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

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.




Bailiff said the incident occurred in a "caged" area outside of a courthouse, and that there was no danger to the community. No other information has been released about the deputies or the suspect. "We will be looking at that video", he said.

Witnesses were being interviewed, she said.

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

A Kansas deputy was killed and another was critically wounded Friday by a gunman who was also shot.

Police said they believe the inmate, Antoine Fielder, who was shackled and handcuffed, used one of the deputies' guns to shoot them.

Bailiff said the investigation was now being handled by the police department in Kansas City.

Kansas City, Kansas, Mayor Dave Alvey spoke Saturday morning, thanking a laundry list of law enforcement entities for their help in responding to the shooting, calling it "a heroic act", as well as the staff of the University of Kansas Hospital.

The shooting happened at around 11:40 a.m. Friday.
