By Trish Svoboda

Following the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade on Wednesday, a shooting took place resulting in at least one death, and up to 22 people were injured.

According to Kansas City Police, the shooting took place west of the Union Station after the Chiefs rally. On its Facebook, the Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) said two armed suspects were detained.

At a Wednesday press conference, Chief Stacey Graves stated that even though over 800 law enforcement officers from KCPD and other agencies were present this incident still occurred.

“I’m angry at what happened today people who came to this celebration should expect a safe environment.” Said Chief Graves.

She also said that officers responded immediately, and administered life-sustaining aid to victims.

Mayor Quinton Lucas stated that the White House reached out and offered federal assistance. He also confirmed that all players, coaches, and staff were accounted for and safe. The FBI has set up a website encouraging anyone with any information or videos to submit them.
