On Tuesday, two additional suspects were charged in connection with the shooting incident that transpired after the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade and rally on February 14.

Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker revealed that Dominic M. Miller from Kansas City and Lyndell Mays from Raytown are both facing charges of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.

According to charging documents, Miller and Mays were present at the parade and rally last week while carrying firearms.

Court records indicate that Mays engaged in an altercation with another individual following the rally. Peters Baker stated that there is no evidence of prior contact or pre-existing acquaintance between these individuals.

She explained that the argument escalated rapidly, with Mays reportedly brandishing a handgun. Subsequently, prosecutors allege that Miller and others also produced firearms and initiated gunfire.

Four males approached Lyndell Mays, with one of them questioning him about what he was observing, as they were unfamiliar with him. Two individuals retrieved firearms from their backpacks. Following the commencement of gunfire directed at Mays, a witness reported that Mays retrieved his own pistol and returned fire.

On Tuesday, Peters Baker refrained from providing details regarding the total number of shooters involved but emphasized their commitment to holding each individual accountable.

Although both Miller and Mays are implicated in the shooting, prosecutors assert that it was Miller who fatally shot Lisa Lopez-Galvan.

According to court records, both Miller and Mays sustained injuries during the incident, and emergency responders transported them to nearby hospitals.

As of Tuesday, the prosecutor stated that both individuals remain hospitalized but are regarded as being in custody. Both suspects are currently detained on a $1 million bond. Peters Baker mentioned on Tuesday that these two suspects are adults. Their charges come in the wake of two minors being charged in family court with gun-related and resisting arrest offenses. The minors have not been identified as they have not yet been certified to stand trial as adults.

In total, 23 individuals sustained gunshot wounds, with half of them being under the age of 16. Tragically, one woman, Lopez-Galvan, succumbed to her injuries. Children’s Mercy Hospital reported over the weekend that all patients treated in the aftermath of the shooting had been discharged. Moreover, Patrick and Brittany Mahomes paid visits to some of the children recuperating from the incident, while Taylor Swift generously donated $100,000 to the GoFundMe campaign established for Lopez-Galvan’s family.
