We’re finally hearing more about those who were arrested after the devastating shooting last week during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade.

What was supposed to be a day of celebration for the team and the city turned tragic when gunfire erupted near Union Station, leaving one dead and 22 others injured, including many in critical condition. Half of the victims are were under the age of 16.

Kansas City radio station KKFI DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan was identified as the deceased victim of the shooting.

Last week, Kansas City police chief Stacey Graves provided a further update on their investigation into the gunfire.

Graves confirmed that there’s no indication that the shooting was the result of terrorism or “homegrown extremism,” but said that it appears to have been the result of a fight that turned deadly.

“This appeared to be a dispute between several people that ended in gunfire.”

This immediately lead people online to speculate that the shooting was a result of gang violence, though nothing has been confirmed as of right now.

Graves also said that police had three suspects detained, two of whom are juveniles.

Police say they also recovered “several firearms,” and one large gun was seen being picked up after a heroic bystander tackled one of the suspects.

And now for the first time we’re learning the identity of some of the suspects.

Two adults, Dominic Miller and Lyndell Mays, were charged today with second degree murder, as well as armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

Both Miller and Mayes were struck by gunfire during the shooting, and have been hospitalized since. They’re currently being held on a $1 million bond as they await a hearing on the charges. Both face up to life in prison if convicted.

And two juveniles have also been charged in connection with the shooting. It was announced late last week that the two unnamed suspects had been slapped with gun charges, as well as resisting arrest. Their identities haven’t been released because they’re both minors, but it’s possible that additional charges could be coming for them, and they could end up being tried as adults.

Speaking about the charges against the suspects, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office said:

“The defendants attended a Super Bowl parade and rally on Feb. 14, 2024, and were armed with firearms…

A verbal altercation occurred and gunfire broke out with no regard for thousands of other individuals in the area.”
