So far the only details released surrounding the shooting is from Lt. Kelli Bailiff who says the deputies were transporting inmates to court when they were "overcome." Both deputies were taken to a local hospital where one was pronounced dead. A suspect was also shot in the incident and was taken to the hospital.

Police say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident. The courthouse where the shooting took place is at 710 N Seventh Street. Police Department Chief Terry Zeigler says details are still unclear about exactly what happened.
