Second Sheriff’s Deputy Dies Following Shooting In Kansas

Rohrer died shortly after the shooting Friday.

Deputy Patrick Rohrer, 35, a seven-year veteran of the agency, died from his injuries.

Fox News reports that a second Kansas City, KS police office has died after being shot Friday by a prisoner during inmate transportation.

Two Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies who were mortally wounded Friday while transporting an inmate were hailed Saturday as heroes who sacrificed their lives in service to public safety. Video from the scene showed the courthouse surrounded by yellow police tape, several police vehicles parked in the street and numerous uniformed law enforcement officers walking the grounds. The deadly altercation took place about 11:30 a.m. when the two Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies in Kansas City pulled into the parking lot and were readying to transport inmates to court, said Kelli Bailiff of the sheriff's office.

Bailiff said the incident occurred in a "caged" area outside a courthouse and there was no danger to the community. Kelli Bailiff said. King, 44, died early on Saturday at a hospital.

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