It's very possible the deputies were attacked with their own guns, Bailiff said.

Their names have not yet been released by authorities, who are investigating how the shooting unfolded near the county courthouse in Kansas City, Kan.

Wyandotte County sheriff's deputy Patrick Rohrer was shot and killed in Kansas City, Kansas, June 15, 2018. Police Capt. Lionel Colón says Fulkerson had barricaded herself in a shed after she was seen outside with a sword.

"There are witnesses we are speaking with", Zac Blair, a spokesman for the KCK police department, told the paper.

Wyandotte County Sheriff spokeswoman Kelli Bailiff said the shooting happened at the Wyandotte County Correctional and Court Services building in Kansas City.

Deputy Theresa King, 44, was also killed.

The suspect is in the operating room at the same hospital, Zeigler said. King had 13 years of service and Rohrer had been with the department for seven years.

Qualifications will be based on merit, and Epic will not sell teams or franchises, or allow third-party leagues to do so, either. Fortnite World Cup qualifiers begin this Fall and will culminate in the very first Fortnite World Cup in late 2019.

The deputies haven't been identified yet, but we know a male deputy died and a female deputy is in critical condition. She said she'd gladly give up a third trial for her daughter's murder if he could be convicted in the latest one.

Local news outlets are reporting that the shooting occurred about 11:30 a.m. Friday.

Both officers were with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Department.

The Kansas City Star reports that the shooting happened Thursday afternoon in the north of the city.

"At first it looked like it was a harmless fight", witness Matthew Sinno said.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said that people will now be seeing them wearing mourning bands as a sign of "respect, honor and solidarity". The suspect's condition was unknown Saturday.

"This incident remains under investigation by the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division, who is encouraging anyone with information to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474- TIPS (8477)", the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office said.
