Authorities Charge Two Juveniles In Connection To KC Super Bowl Parade Shooting | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Two minors have been charged in connection to the deadly shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade earlier this week, authorities announced on Friday.

    The two juveniles, who police did not identify, were charged on Thursday and are being held on gun-related and resisting arrest charges at a juvenile facility, The New York Post reported. A third minor was let go on Thursday after investigators determined that person was not involved in the shooting, according to a Kansas City Police Department spokesman.

    "It is anticipated that additional charges are expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues," the Jackson County, Missouri, Family Court Division said in a statement.

    A 43-year-old woman was killed and more than 20 people, including 11 children, were injured when gunfire erupted near Union Station in Kansas City on Wednesday, turning a celebration into a nightmare. KC Police Chief Stacey Graves said at a news conference on Thursday that authorities' initial findings on the shooting "have shown there was no nexus to terrorism or homegrown violent extremism."

    "This appeared to be a dispute between several people that ended in gunfire," Graves said.

    Police detained three people immediately following the shooting and recovered firearms from the scene.


    More than 800 law enforcement officers were in and around Union Station when the shots rang out. Video posted on social media showed multiple parade goers tackling a man who was running through the crowd immediately after the shooting. The bystanders pinned the man down for around 30 seconds before police officers arrived. One witness also said she saw a gun fall away from the man as he was tackled to the ground. It remains unclear if the person tackled by the parade goers is one of the juveniles who was charged in connection to the shooting.

    Police identified Lisa Lopez-Galvan as the victim who died from her gunshot wounds. Lopez-Galvan was a DJ for a Kansas City radio station and the mother of two children.

    "It is with sincere sadness and an extremely heavy and broken heart that we let our community know that KKFI DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan, host of Taste of Tejano lost her life today in the shooting at the KC Chiefs' rally," radio station KKFI said. "Our hearts and prayers are with her family. ... This senseless act has taken a beautiful person from her family and this KC Community."
