Two Juveniles Charged in Relation to Mass Shooting at Super Bowl Celebration

Two un-identified juveniles have been charged for their participation in the deadly shooting in a Kansas Super Bowl victory celebration and are currently being detained on gun-related resisting arrest charges.

The statement confirmed that “additional charges are expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues.”  Authorities are yet to release the ages of the detained juveniles.

Police Chief Stacey Graves said the suspects “hurt innocent people, simultaneously scarring an entire community,” in a statement the police department posted to social media on Friday Feb.16. The chief also expressed gratitude for the charges.”

“We will not relent until everyone who may have played a part in these crimes is apprehended so that they may be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” Graves said.

Investigators believe a tiff between many people resulted in the scene that unfolded Wednesday afternoon at the Chiefs’ celebration outside Union Station.

A number of guns were recovered from the scene, raising concerns for the availability of deadly weapons for Americans across the country. 

Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a 43-year-old mother of two and a local radio DJ, was one of the victims of the shooting. According to police, 22 others were wounded, between the ages 8 and 47 years old.
