2 Adults Arrested, Charged With Murder In Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade Shooting

2 Adults Arrested, Charged With Murder In Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade Shooting

Two adult males have been arrested and charged with murder in last week’s Kansas City parade shooting where one person was killed and 22 others were injured, Missouri prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Each of the adults, who will not be named per Daily Wire policy, is charged with second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, ABC News reported. Baker said that 43-year-old mother Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed by a bullet fired by one of the adults who was charged. The murder charges come after authorities charged two juveniles with gun-related and resisting arrest charges last week.

Baker said that there appeared to be a “verbal argument” at the parade and “that argument very quickly escalated,” with one of the adult suspects pulling out a firearm and “almost immediately, others pulled their firearms.” The male suspects are in the hospital after sustaining injuries in the shooting and are being held on $1 million bond.

One of the defendants was charged on Saturday and the second was charged on Monday night. Both of their charges were unsealed by a court on Tuesday. The prosecutor didn’t detail if there is any relationship between the adults and the juveniles charged in connection to the deadly shooting. Both of the juveniles remain unidentified.

KC Police Chief Stacey Graves said last week that authorities’ initial findings on the shooting “have shown there was no nexus to terrorism or homegrown violent extremism,” adding that it “appeared to be a dispute between several people that ended in gunfire.”


Lopez-Galvan, the victim who was killed in the shooting, 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.”
