ONE DEAD, AT LEAST 22 SHOT IN KANSAS CITY DURING SUPER BOWL CELEBRATION

A radio disc jockey and diehard Kansas City Chiefs fan was killed yesterday as shots rang out during a Super Bowl victory celebration in Kansas City.

In a Facebook post, the KKFI community radio station said DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan’s life was taken by a “senseless act.”

Lopez, a mother of two, was confirmed killed in the shooting at the end of the parade at Kansas City’s Union Station.

Other victims of the shooting have not been named. The gunfire started around 2 p.m. yesterday near the Union Station parking garage as more than 800 police officers were in the area.

At least one weapon was also recovered by police.

At least 22 people were wounded in the shooting. Eight had “immediately” life-threatening injuries, seven had life-threatening injuries and six had minor injuries.

Officials at Children’s Mercy Hospital said 11 children ranging in age from 6 to 15 years old were being treated at the hospital and nine of them had gunshot wounds. None were in critical condition and all were expected to recover.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas added that all Chiefs players, staff, and their families were safe and accounted for.

Three people were taken into custody shortly after the shooting. One suspect was arrested after being chased by police shortly after the shots were fired. The identities of the three have not been released so far.

Police are still investigating the motive for the shooting.
