Two Wyandotte County (KS) Sheriffs Deputies Shot by Prisoner, One Dead

As fox4kc.com is reporting, “A Wyandotte County sheriff’s deputy died on Friday after a shooting that happened while a suspect was being moved from court back to the jail. The suspect was also struck in the shooting. The other deputy is in critical condition.”

One of the two deputies was apparently disarmed by the prisoner in front of the Kansas City, Kansas courthouse in the process of transporting him back to the county jail. The prisoner shot both deputies before he was shot as well. The suspect and the surviving deputy are in critical condition.

    Retention holsters, people…

      that’s just crazy talk. the chances of being disarmed are….wait what….

    Hopefully, the other cop isn’t a woman and she didn’t get disarmed.

      One of the deputies was a woman but reports about exactly what happened are rather circumspect. Per the sheriff’s spokesperson, the “deputies were overcome” – note the plural – and “It is very possible that with their own firearm — they were both shot”. So it sounds like the deputies were sharing one weapon between them, and the perp overpowered them both at the same time, singlehandedly. Either that or the sheriff’s office is tying itself in verbal pretzels trying to avoid giving away specifics.

        When I read the title my first guess was it would turn out to be an overweight male, a woman and a black prisoner. An educated guess, so to speak.

          This guy was tried twice for a murder he committed in 2015, both juries hung. Then he apparently killed one of the witnesses, which is what he was in court for today. Supposedly, he’s confessed to a total of our murders, and now he’s got five.

          Oh, and yeah, he’s black.

        Could be she had the gun and her partner had the bullet, and they were unable to activate their wonder twin powers in time to subdue the perp.

          “SNICKER!”””

      3. avatar Hannibal says:

        I seriously doubt they were “sharing” a weapon. More likely he got one of their guns and shot both before the one who was left armed could return fire, or a similar situation.

        Routine and complacency kill.

        1. avatar DaveL says:

          Yeah, I guess the sarcasm didn’t come through all that clearly.

  5. avatar MIO says:

    Leg shackles, belly chain and cuffs should be used for this very reason. Stop cuffing in front and remember that restrained is not supervised.

    1. avatar bobo says:

      it should be
      hand cuffed behind back belly chain holding that
      leg chain and 20# ball
      tazer belt! set on ‘sizzle’ or ‘fry’

  6. avatar Wade says:

    The con got the weapon because none of the hard asses from TTAG was there to show’m how to open carry.

  7. avatar ollie says:

    Why was the prisoner transported to the hospital ???
    Should have let him bleed out.

    1. avatar bobo says:

      yep

      “the ambulance was too late in arrival to save the prisoner….no there is no confirmation that the medics stopped for dinner and a strip show before coming to the incident!”

    UPDATE, UPDATE, MORE SENSELESS MASS MURDER. INNOCENT MOTHER, HER 3 CHILDREN AND ONE INNOCENT BY STANDER ALL GUN DOWNED IN A HAIL OF BULLETS BY 23 YEAR OLD NUT CASE IN ROAD RAGE INCIDENT . MOTHER WAS ONLY GOING TO THE DENTIST. RIVERS OF BLOOD AND CARNAGE IN THE PARKING LOT AND THE NUT CASE SMILED AS HE SURRENDERED TO AUTHORITIES.

    NOW YOU KNOW WHY KATE LEWIS IS SCARED SHITLESS TO RETURN TO THE U.S. FROM JAPAN. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD NOT BE.

        This is to easy I do not have to make a fool of you , as you have already done it to yourself. If you were not so shiftless and lazy on the keyboard (among other things too) all you would have had to do is log on to any news site today.

      2. avatar DaveL says:

        Let me help you out with that.

        Does it surprise you that “mass murder” was a bit of an embellishment on Cisco’s part? One victim died, so far the others survived.

        1. avatar Southern Cross says:

          Even the FBI acknowledge most people shot do NOT die. So while FIVE people were shot, only ONE person died. And the perpetrator is in custody. I will concede the event happened but this is NOT an event to justify all other person’s owning firearms must have them seized for public safety.

          Justice is when the guilty are punished. Tyranny is when the innocent are punished.

          Your idiocy and crass disregard for human suffering is beyond all civilized comprehension, not to mention the thousands in medical bills it will cost the family. What your basically saying is ” who cares its not my family” and lets ignore the serious problem of mass murder and shootings in the U.S. Lets do nothing about it and maybe it will just go away. Famous last words and Darwinism at its best but is not that the hallmark of Conservatism?????

        3. avatar DaveL says:

          I said nothing of the sort. I said you were embellishing, which you were. I note that you’ve now moved past embellishment into hysterical confabulation. Congratulations.

      Wow Cisco, that’s terrible news. I can’t wait until the government takes my firearms away, how about you? I’m so sick of these shootings I’m moving to Japan and buy me a motorcycle. I’m Thinking one of them Suzuki Davidson “Hibachi’s” would be keen. Join the Jacuzzi’s and tool down them endless miles of open road.

        Reading Comprehension, Reading Comprehension. I never advocated taking any firearms away but WHAT I HAVE SAID OVER AND OVER AGAIN ( you would have thought after 10,000 posts about this you would have finally caught on) THAT I AM FOR VETTING OF ALL PURCHASES AND SAFE STORAGE. NOW WHAT PART OF THIS DO YOU STILL NOT UNDERSTAND.

        1. avatar ironicatbest says:

          Your right, no argument from me. LOL iron brain, I like that. Son of a gun, your going to require me to look up the word “vetting”, I thot vetting meant, all pissed off and mad about it, but evidently not.

        2. avatar ACP_armed says:

          How long does it take an idiot to realize that coming down on law abiding gun owners does not deter the murderers or insane people that commit crimes. We already have laws against attempted murder, murder etc. and how many crimes did they stop. Self defense will deter or halt a criminal.

      Believe me, everyone would be happier if Kate Lewis stayed in Japan. I’m sure you’d be welcome there too if the USA is so unbearable to you.

      As for who wouldn’t be afraid to return, I’ve been stationed in Okinawa and had no fear of returning. But then, I live in a Republican controlled state and city, so we have way less crime than literally any Dem controlled city in the nation.

        Yes your a real genius. Lets do nothing about the mass murder and carnage everyday in the U.S. because it might inconvenience you to go through a vetting process on all firearms purchases, improve our mental health treatment and cross checks on a persons mental health records, and support safe storage. Nope, says you, because for you personally “the body count can never be too high” as you would have to admit the U.S. has been the most idiotic Industrialized Nation on earth by not doing something or even anything about the problem of mass murder by gunfire. The Unwashed might lose face and the unwashed are arrogant enough to accuse Asians of putting so much emphasis on loss of face.

        Yes that is the standard retarded Right Wing Moronic comeback i.e. the U.S. is perfect and its unpatriotic to do anything about the gun problem as we just might have to admit we have remained idiots for far to many years in this country and why make it more civilized as we would not feel at home without bullets whistling over our heads every day or we would have not much to do without going to children’s funerals everyday from unattended guns lying around the house or mass murder in our schools. All this you say “is the American way” lets not change it. Tell me do you still shit in the out house everyday because you do not trust inside toilets??????

        And by the way your statement about not caring about needless deaths as long as it does not affect Podunct Junction is about as crass and cold blooded as Hitlers Nazi gang of thugs but what the hey they were Conservatives too. ehh????

          I don’t remember saying or typing these things. But then, I have a tiny intellect, so maybe I just missed it… Or, you are lying about what I say… Do you think lying will change anyone’s mind?

        2. avatar timothy says:

          You can call my intellect tiny if you’d like. Yet I can make a point without lying about what another person says and without trying to compare someone to Nazis. You only insult yourself because people with tiny intellects are capable of more honest and polite discussion than you are capable of.

          Scoutino, I don’t correct grammar mistakes because I make them too. I’m reminded of a quote that Conservatives think Liberals are wrong, but Liberals think Conservatives are evil and anything you do to someone who’s evil is justified.

          Who cares if he lies about what I said? Who cares if he implies that I’m just as bad as Hitler’s Nazis gangs? I’m the bad guy, so everything is justified.

          You’ve said vetting about 10,000 times in 10,000 post, and I still don’t get it. What is this vetting you speak of?

    Next prisoner is transferred like Hannibal Lector. Facemask and all. With a 12 gauge strapped to his head the whole time.

  15. avatar Chuck Barnard says:

    Couldn’t have happened if the gun had been carried by a man too far from the prisoner to reach.

    Hope the guy lives, wouldn’t wish it on anyone–injuries and guilt. Prisoner managed to ruin two more groups of people’s lives thanks to a poor procedure.

    Hope he learned a lesson too.
