One suspect was also shot and taken to an area hospital. "The police had drawn their guns... and the active shooters were coming from close to the convention center, so they were meeting in the middle basically", a witness told FOX4's Kara Mashek.

Deputy Patrick Rohrer, 35, died at the hospital from his injuries.

Kansas City, Kansas, police confirm the deputies were shot at the courthouse in downtown Kansas City, Kansas.

Kansas City police have fatally shot a woman who barricaded herself in a shed for hours after she was seen outside with a sword.
