Legal Action Unfolds: Two Adults Accused in Fatal Shooting During Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade Celebration

Kansas City Chiefs fans take cover after shots were fired at the conclusion of the Super Bowl rally at Union Station on Feb. 14, 2024, in Kansas City, Missouri. More than 20 people were shot, including one fatally.

Two individuals have been charged in connection with the recent shooting incident that resulted in one fatality and 22 injuries during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl celebration, according to prosecutors who made the announcement on Tuesday.

Two individuals are facing murder and other felony charges in relation to a shooting incident outside Union Station last Wednesday.

Dominic M. Miller, 18, from Kansas City, and 22-year-old Lyndell Mays from Raytown are both charged with second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and the unlawful use of a weapon. Each individual is currently being detained on a $1 million bail.

“We aim to ensure that every individual responsible is held accountable for their actions on that day. “Every single one,” Jean Peters Baker, the Jackson County Prosecutor, said during a news briefing. Baker mentioned that more individuals could face charges.

Prosecutors suspect that Mays engaged in a verbal altercation with an individual he was not acquainted with.

The situation intensified rapidly, leading Mays to pull out a handgun, according to Baker. “Mays was the first to pull out his handgun,” she stated.

Miller proceeded to draw his handgun, according to officials. It is suspected that he shot Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a local radio disc jockey and mother of two children, who passed away from her injuries.

23 individuals were shot, with almost half of them being under 16 years old. Lopez-Galvan was the sole casualty. The incident took place on the west side of Union Station, causing the large crowd of fans to quickly seek shelter.

The Lopez-Galvan family expressed relief and gratitude for the collaborative effort that led to the identification of the suspects.

Eleven children were injured in the shooting, but they are expected to make a full recovery. Nine individuals were shot, while two others sustained different injuries.
