Slain Kansas deputies were both parents

Second deputy dies in shooting in Kansas

"We continue to pray for our brothers and sister with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Department as we lose our sister this morning".

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer (R) was told of the shooting on Friday as he arrived for a forum in Kansas City.

"We must never forget the risk taken each day by our law enforcement personnel, and we must ever remember that they deserve our utmost respect and support", Alvey said.

Both officers were with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Department. One of the deputy's high school classmates started the fund.

A candlelight vigil for the deputies was set to be held at 8pm on Sunday, in front of city hall. Investigators said the inmate may have grabbed a weapon from one of the deputies during a struggle late Friday morning. The inmate was also shot, and Zeigler said the last he heard, he was in stable condition.

Kansas City, Kansas, police confirmed on their Facebook page that Deputy Theresa King, 44, died just after midnight following the shooting on Friday.

King was a 13-year veteran of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said it was too early in the investigation to publicly detail how the shootings could have happened.

The inmate was being transported across the street from the jail to the services building for a court hearing, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Maj.

Bailiff said a credit union fund will be set up soon for people to donate to help the families of the slain deputies, and that information will be provided publicly later.

Bailiff said the investigation was now being handled by the police department in Kansas City. Bailiff said the second inmate, who was not identified, was unharmed.

The officials declined to go into more specifics about how the shooting happened, though Bailiff said the deputies had "followed proper procedure".

Video cameras on the building have footage that will be reviewed, and all Wyandotte County sheriff's deputies also have body cameras.
