One officer killed, another critically injured at Kansas City courthouse


"Both incidents unfolded protecting other citizens", Smith said, adding that both incidents will be investigated internally by KCPD. The investigation into the shooting is continuing.

Police Capt. Lionel Colón says he doesn't know if the woman was armed with the sword when she was killed.

The suspect was also shot during the confrontation in a gated area near the Wyandotte County Courthouse in Kansas City, Kansas.

The identities of the deputies and the suspect were not disclosed early Friday afternoon, the Star reported.

Bailiff said the inmate was being taken across the street from the jail, to the services building, for a court hearing. The men's names haven't been released.

The deputies were shot after a suspect overpowered at least one of them and perhaps took a weapon, said Major Kelli Bailiff of the Wyandotte Sheriff's Department said during a press conference.
