A female deputy who was shot Friday as she and another deputy were transporting prisoners from a courthouse has died, officials in Kansas City, Kansas, said Saturday.

Authorities say the inmate apparently overpowered the deputies in a gated area behind the Kansas City, Kansas, courthouse and shot the deputies - possibly with one of their own guns.

Fielder was shot during the incident and underwent surgery but his condition has not been released. Terry Zeigler, the police chief of Kansas City, Kansas, said at a news conference on Saturday that as far as he knew, the man was in stable condition.

Alvey mourned the loss of deputies Theresa King, known as "TK", and Patrick Rohrer, whom he described as "two of our young, bright, committed sheriff's deputies" that the department lost on a "terribly tragic day".

Rohrer, 35, was with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office for 17 years and King, 44, was a 14-year veteran.

Kansas City, Kansas, police confirmed that 44-year-old Deputy Theresa King died early Saturday from injuries suffered when an inmate overpowered the two deputies.

The death of Rohrer and King follows three other shootings of Wyandotte County law enforcement officers in the past three years, according to the Star. Kelli Bailiff of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office.
