"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)", a sheriff's office statement said.

Two sheriff's deputies in Kansas were killed in the line of duty on Friday as they transported an inmate from jail to a court hearing.

Earlier Friday Deputy Patrick Rohrer died shortly after the shooting at KU Med from his injuries, authorities said. "Praying for Wyandotte County!" the Kansas City Police Department wrote on Facebook following King's passing. She was pronounced dead about 12 hours later, just after midnight on Saturday. The inmate was taken in a van to a gated area behind the building, and when he got out of van, he somehow overtook and shot the deputies, Bailiff said. Police spokesman Zac Blair said authorities will be reviewing surveillance video.
