Two adults were charged with murder Tuesday over the terrifying shooting
at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade that left one dead and 22
others hospitalized, prosecutors said.

Dominic Miller, 18, and Lyndell Mays, 22, both face charges of second-
degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of
a weapon.

They are being held on $1 million bond.

“The defendants attended a Super Bowl parade and rally on Feb. 14, 2024,
and were armed with firearms,” the Jackson County prosecutor’s office

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

Miller and Mays had “no prior connection” before they encountered one
another at the parade on Valentine’s Day, prosecutors confirmed at a press
conference, but when a heated argument broke out between the strangers, it
quickly escalated.

Mays allegedly drew his weapon first, and “almost immediately” several
others, including Miller, brandished their own.

It was Miller’s weapon that fired the bullet that killed 43-year-old Lisa
Lopez Gavlan, a mother of two, prosecutors said.

The charges come just days after two teens were slapped with gun and
resisting arrest charges.

Those teens were charged as minors, but officials have said they could be
upgraded to adults in the coming weeks.

A total of four people have now been charged in the deadly mass shooting.

They declined to comment on how many shooters they suspected were

The shooting broke out on Wednesday as thousands of fans lined the streets
of Kansas City to watch NFL team’s victory parade.

The gunfire erupted over a dispute between the suspects, according to
police, though the exact nature of the fight remains unclear.

Crowds scattered in a terrifying scene investigators called a “stampede”
as the shots rang out, but brave bystanders managed to tackle the suspects
as they fled.

The alleged gunmen were restrained on the ground by the citizens until
police were able to detain them.

In addition to the fatal wounds Gavlan suffered, 12 children were injured
in the hail of bullets.

One boy was struck with a bullet that missed his lungs by centimeters,
with his family calling his survival a “miracle.”

He and the other children were all released from the hospital in stable
condition as of Saturday.

Of the victims, ranging in age from 8 to 47 years old, one was left in
critical condition and two were reported to be improving as of the

Both Miller and Mays have been in the hospital themselves since their
arrest, though the nature of their injuries remains unclear.

Their relationship to the two minors charged also remains unclear.

Investigators said they have identified all bystanders who were struck by
bullets in shooting but are asking anybody who suffered any other kind of
injury in the ensuing stampede to come forward to assist their

It remains unclear how the suspects acquired the weapons used in the
shootout, or whether they were legally owned.

Missouri has notoriously loose gun laws — a recent report from a Giffords
Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence ranked the state 48th in the nation for
the low strength of its regulations, according to the Springfield News-

Guns can be bought without permits and without being registered, and there
is no minimum age required to purchase a weapon — only a law banning the
“reckless” sale of guns to people under 18 without parental consent.

There are also no permits required for concealed carry in most places for
owners 19 and older. Open carry is also allowed in most places.

Background checks are required for purchases from federally licensed
dealers, but they are not required for gun show sales or private purchases
or gifts.

We live in a time where intelligent people are being silenced so that
stupid people won't be offended.
