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

Deputy Patrick Rohrer died at the hospital from his injuries, authorities said. He had worked for the department for seven years. She initially was in critical condition following the shooting, but was pronounced dead during the overnight hours Friday into Saturday.

Authorities say they are not searching for any other suspects at this time.

The shooting is under investigation.

Moments later, the Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies were shot by one of the inmates shortly after 11am.

Blair says the wounded have been taken to the University of Kansas Hospital. The wounded officer and the suspect were undergoing surgeries Friday afternoon.

Bailiff said the inmate was being taken across the street from the jail, to the services building, for a court hearing. The parking lot where the incident occurred is gated. Details of what led to the shootings are not yet available.

The Rev. Vernon Howard, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference of Greater Kansas City, said he has many questions and isn't confident they will be answered by a police department investigation.

Witnesses were being interviewed, she said.

The Fraternal Order of Police in Kansas City, Kansas, said in a statement: 'We are praying for our friends at the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Officer, their families, friends and our entire blue family.
