Kansas City police kill woman spotted with a sword

One Wyandotte County Sheriff's deputy has died and another is in critical condition following a shooting late Friday morning.

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

'Our hearts break for our brothers and sisters at Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office as well as for the loved ones of the deputies shot today, one of whom has died. The suspect was also shot and was being treated at the same hospital, Bailiff said. She's now barricaded within a garage, police say. Police Officer Zac Blair said authorities are reviewing surveillance video. A female deputy remains in critical condition.

One sheriff's deputy was fatally shot and another was shot and critically wounded when an inmate overpowered them near a Kansas courthouse on Friday, officials said.

A candlelight vigil is scheduled for 8 p.m. Sunday in Kansas City, Kansas, for the deputies, who both were parents. A van with prisoners left the Wyandotte County Jail entry, on the left, and went into a gated parking lot area on the right of the photo, where the shooting occurred.

Zeigler said both deputies were taken to KU Med Center for treatment. He was a seven-year veteran of the department, KCTV5 reported.

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