Two Kansas sheriff's deputies who were shot and killed by an inmate while transporting him between the courthouse and jail were both parents, authorities said Saturday.

Rohrer died shortly after arriving at the hospital, while King, who initially arrived at the hospital in critical condition, died from her injuries early Saturday morning. Rohrer, who had been with the department for seven years, had two children of his own.

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer released a statement Friday saying he was deeply saddened to learn of the shooting and that he and his wife, Ruth, would be praying for the deputies and their families.

Authorities are not looking for any other suspects in connection to the incident.
