Deputy Theresa King, 44, died early Saturday after Friday’s shooting. Deputy Patrick Rohrer, 35, died earlier.
The inmate was being taken from jail to the courthouse when the shooting occurred, the Los Angeles Times reported. He was in a gated area, where inmates are taken out of a van, and may have overpowered the deputies and taken hold of one of their weapons, according to preliminary investigations.
Rohrer, age 35, died after being taken to the hospital from his injuries. He worked with the department for seven years. King, 44, had 13 years of service. Both died at the University of Kansas Medical Center, according to news releases from the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department.
The suspect was also shot and was reported to be undergoing surgery for his or her injuries, according to The New York Times.
“When they pulled into the parking lot and readied to transport these inmates, they were overcome,” Maj. Kelli Bailiff, a spokeswoman for the Wyandotte County sheriff’s office, said at a news conference on Friday, The New York Times reported. “It is very possible that with their own firearm they were both shot.”
The Kansas City Police Department is investigating.
"There are witnesses we are speaking with," said Zac Blair, a spokesman for the Kansas City police, via The Kansas City Star. "This is a courthouse building, there is video. We will be looking at that video.”
Witness John Garcia was leaving the courthouse building at the time of the shooting. After gunshots rang out, he and others ran back inside and into a courtroom.
"I was in a panic," he said, via the Star. "My stomach was in knots.
Garcia and others had to stay in the courtroom until authorities deemed it safe to leave.
"They were there at the courthouse. You know, you're at one of the safest places where you can be," Garcia told the Star. "And, you know, this occurred right outside the courthouse, where there's, you know, multiple police around."
MAN ON MISSION TO MOW LAWNS IN ALL 50 STATES maggie.ren 2018-06-170 views A man has made it his life’s mission to mow lawns for free as an act of public service. He combines free lawn mowing with youth mentorship, and is touring the Unites States to mow lawns in all 50 of them.
Rodney Smith Jr. explained that God gave him the inspiration to start this venture.
"He gave me the answer the day I came across an elderly man outside mowing his lawn, and that's the day I stopped and pulled over and helped him out. That night, I decided to mow free lawns for the elderly, disabled, single moms, and veterans."
For his 26th stop, Smith is in Nashville. He inspires young people in his lawn mowing travels with the 50-yard challenge.
A 9-year-old mentee of Smith, Ryan Youngquist, has been mowing his grandfather’s lawn ever since his grandfather fell off a ladder and hurt his shoulder.
"Like Mr. Smith says, I'm able, other people aren’t,” said Ryan.
Dramatic television images, distributed by Galapagos National Park of the eruption, showed clouds of gases and smoke rising hundreds of feet into the sky around La Cumbre volcano and streams of molten lava pouring into the sea, on its northern slope.
“I never expected something like this to go ahead and happen. It’s just kinda out of the clear blue,” Brian Reynolds told Fox 32.
Reynolds said a woman contacted him to rent the condo through Airbnb for May 31, saying she was in town for a graduation party.
Reynolds’s listing states that no more than two people can be at his condo but he received a phone call from his neighbor alerting him that he should go by the condo because there were a lot of people there.
“I walked through my front door, they had food catering, a bunch of cast members out there. My front door was open half way so I walked in and my whole place was filled. About 30 people in there. I couldn’t believe it. I’ve never had that many people in my place,” Reynolds said.
The condo in Chicago Park was also filled with cameras, lights, and film equipment, and the crowd had been filming scenes in multiple rooms, including the bathroom and Reynolds’s bedroom.
“They said they had one more scene left to go ahead and film. They said it would take 45 minutes. I said no, you guys gotta get out of here. My neighbors are outside. And I had to look out for their safety first and foremost,” Reynolds said.
Reynolds ordered everyone to leave and soon contacted Airbnb to demand an investigation. But the company said that what happened was “not a violation of our terms of service.”
However, a representative told Fox 32 that a company official did confirm with Reynolds that a listing should never be used for commercial purposes without a host’s permission.
Airbnb said the investigation concluded that a film crew was shooting a music video.
It’s unclear if the renters will face any consequences. Reynolds is trying to prevent the videos from being published.
“I’ve got pictures of my family up and whatnot and I don’t want this popping up anywhere on the internet” Reynolds said. “It’s definitely a violation of my privacy.”
