KSHB-TV reports the two deputies were transporting prisoners around 11:30 a.m. when they were "overcome" and were shot.

Kansas City police have fatally shot a woman who barricaded herself in a shed for hours after she was seen outside with a sword.

Two Wyandotte County Sheriff's Deputies have been shot in Kansas City, Kansas.

The shooting is under investigation by the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department, Bailiff said, and more information likely will be available Saturday.

The authorities are not looking for any other suspects in connection to the incident. That deputy's name has not been released.

There is surveillance video of the scene, Blair added. Both officers were transported to a local hospital where one remains in critical condition.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in Wyandotte County", the Johnson County, Kansas, sheriff's office tweeted almost two hours after the shooting. A male deputy died from his injuries.

The shooting and subsequent events happened in the parking lot of the gated transport office.




The suspect is in the operating room at the same hospital, Zeigler said. Police Chief Rick Smith acknowledged it was unusual to have two deadly force incidents in such a short time span, given that Kansas City police typically count two to five fatal officer-involved shootings per year.

The victims of the second shooting had reportedly been fighting over a golf cart and a gun in Barney Allis Plaza in downtown Kansas City, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the first shooting. The surviving officer was critically injured.

Several law enforcement departments offered words of support and prayers for Wyandotte County on social media.

"We gather here today with so many emotions coursing through our guts", Alvey said, noting that some of those are "feelings of anger and revenge toward the assailant".

FOX4 reported that this was the fourth officer-related shooting in the past three years in Kansas City.

Witnesses were being interviewed, she said.

Authorities said it was too early in the investigation to publicly detail how the shootings could have happened.
