Kansas City Police Involved in Stand-off with Sword-Wielding Woman

The second shooting took the lives of two men who police say were fighting over a gun and a golf cart in downtown Kansas City

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

"There are witnesses we are speaking with", said Zac Blair, a spokesman for the Kansas City police department, according to the Kansas City Star.

An inmate overpowered two sheriff's deputies while being transported to a Kansas City courthouse on Friday, resulting in a shooting that killed one deputy and critically wounded the other, authorities said.

Zach Blair, with the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department says they are not looking for any other suspects. She's now barricaded within a garage, police say.

Both officers were taken to an area hospital where Rohrer was pronounced dead.

He was a 7-year veteran of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office.

Video from a woman who was inside one of the courtrooms shows the chaos that followed the shooting, first responders arriving to help the deputies, and a woman lying on the ground.

Bailiff said the incident occurred in a "caged" area outside of a courthouse, and that there was no danger to the community.

The suspect also was shot and was operated on at the hospital.

The Olathe Police Department, Raymore Police Department in Missouri and the Jackson County Sheriff's Officer in Missouri tweeted similar heartfelt messages. The surviving deputy is female.

Terry Zeigler, chief of the KCKPD, told the paper the deputies were transporting the inmate from the jail, which is across the street.

Blair says the wounded have been taken to the University of Kansas Hospital.

He also addressed the fact that there have been four officer shootings in Wyandotte County in three years. She said she would gladly give up a third trial for her daughter's murder if Fielder could be convicted for the 2017 murder. The suspect's condition was unknown Saturday. In the other incident, a standoff ended when a sword-wielding woman who fled from police later was shot after attempts to negotiate peacefully proved unsuccessful.

Few details have been released about the shootings, including the victims' names.
