2 Suspects Charged With Murder After Chiefs Parade Shooting

Prosecutors announced on Tuesday that two individuals have been charged with murder in connection with last week's Chiefs Super Bowl parade shooting.

Two more suspects were charged on Tuesday in connection with last week’s Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade shooting that left one dead and more than 30 injured.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced that Dominic Miller and Lyndell Mays were charged with second-degree murder. Both men also face two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. Miller and Mays are being detained on $1 million bond.

Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a 43-year-old DJ and radio host, was killed in the shooting.

Twenty-three people, including Lopez-Galvan, were shot last Wednesday. Police said the victims ranged in age from eight to 47, while at least half were under 16 years old.

Evidence collected during the investigation indicated Miller’s gunfire killed Lopez-Galvan, per Baker. Mays was the first to take out his handgun after getting into an argument with another individual.

“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day — every single one,” Baker said. “While we are not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”

Miller and Mays were injured during the shooting. Both remain hospitalized as of Tuesday.

“Our investigation continues at full velocity,” Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves said in a Tuesday statement. “Teams of detectives are working nonstop to ensure that anyone else responsible for the sitting is apprehended and they receive the maximum punishment allowed by law.”

Two juveniles were charged in connection with the shooting last week. The minors were being held in Jackson County’s Juvenile Center while facing “gun-related and resisting arrest charges.”

Over 800 police officers were deployed in the area for the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade. Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas, present at the rally, said Wednesday’s attack will not prevent further celebrations.

“We have parades all the time,” Lucas said. “I don’t think they’ll end. Certainly, we recognized the public safety challenges and issues that relate to them.”
