Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade shooting leaves one dead and 21 injured

One person has been killed and 21 others were injured, including eight children, after a shooting at the end of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory parade.

The dead victim has been named as mother-of-two and radio DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan. Local reports say her son Marc is among the wounded.

In a statement, the radio station where she worked, KKFI, said: “It is with sincere sadness and an extremely heavy and broken heart that we let our community know that KKFI DJ Lisa Lopez, host of Taste of Tejano lost her life today in the shooting at the KC Chiefs’ rally.

“Our hearts and prayers are with her family. We encourage anyone who feels they saw something to reach out to law enforcement at 816 234 5111.

“This senseless act has taken a beautiful person from her family and this KC Community.”

The team and their supporters had been celebrating the win against the San Francisco 49ers following Sunday’s American football showpiece event in Las Vegas.

The barrage of gunfire outside a nearby former train station in Kansas City, Missouri, sent crowds of fans at the rally running for safety.

Police said all the victims were hit by gunshots, including seven who were seriously injured and six who were described as “moderately” wounded. They were being treated in three different hospitals.

After the shooting, three people, including at least two who were armed, were taken into custody and firearms have been recovered, according to officers.

Video footage showed a chaotic scene outside Union Station – now a museum – as officers stormed the building while Chiefs fans ran for cover.

Police said they believed Wednesday’s incident was criminal and not terror-related, but the motive is not known.

Stacey Graves, a police chief, said she had heard reports that Chiefs fans were involved in the apprehension of the suspects but she could not confirm that.

She also said she was “angry” at what had happened, as more than 800 officers were on duty to “keep everyone safe” but the tragedy occurred even with them there.
