Kansas City Police Chief Gives Update on Super Bowl Parade Shooting

By Trish Svoboda

Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves gave an update this afternoon regarding the shooting that took place after the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade on Wednesday.

Chief Graves stressed first and foremost that preliminary investigative findings showed there was “no nexus to terrorism or homegrown violent extremism” and that it seemed to have been a dispute involving multiple people that ended in gunfire.

There were 22 victims ranging in age from 8-47, with at least half the victims being under the age of 16. One fatality has been reported thus far. Authorities confirmed that 43-year-old Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a DJ in the Kansas City area, lost her life in the shooting.

Chief Graves said two of the suspects in custody are juveniles. She also noted that they have recovered several firearms.

She stressed this investigation is very active, and anyone with any information, video footage, or victims who have not yet contacted the police to call 816-413-3477. The FBI also has a website encouraging anyone with any information or videos to submit them.
