Gov. Jeff Colyer ordered flags to be flown at half-staff Thursday from sun up until sundown in honor of Wyandotte County sheriff deputies Theresa “TK” King and Patrick Rohrer, who were killed in the line of duty last week.
“These two brave individuals lost their lives protecting the public and we owe them a deep debt of gratitude for their selfless service,” Colyer said.
“We pray for their loved ones, as well as all law enforcement officers as we mourn this senseless tragedy.”
A joint funeral for King and Rohrer will be Thursday at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas.
