Rohrer, 35, died shortly after the shooting.

Officials identified the deputies that died in the shooting as Patrick Rohrer, 35, and Theresa King, 44. One of the mortally wounded deputies managed to shoot the suspect, who remains hospitalized.

Kansas City, Kan., Police Chief Terry Zeigler said homicide detectives are working hard on the case and will be meeting in the coming days with the Wyandotte County District Attorney's office, but he didn't know when charges would be filed. The suspect was also shot and underwent surgery, but his condition was unknown.

Two inmates were being transported from the Wyandotte County Correctional and Court Services Building on 7th Street. The two had a combined 20 years of service for the sheriff's department in Wyandotte County. Authorities also have not released any information about the suspect or the extent of his injuries. The inmate was taken in a van to a gated area behind the building, and when he got out of the van, he somehow overpowered and shot the deputies, Bailiff said. "We will be looking at that video", he said. "Praying for Wyandotte County!"

"The protocol has been in place for a long time and from what I observed and from what I believe the investigation will show is they followed proper procedure", she said of the deputies.
