One of the two adults charged with second-degree murder in the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade shooting has been released from the hospital and was booked at the Jackson County Detention Center.

The 23-year-old black male, who will not be named per Daily Wire policy, was treated for gunshot wounds. He is accused of starting an argument with a group of people during the parade last week before he pulled out a gun and began firing, according to charging documents. People in the group arguing with the suspect then allegedly pulled out guns and shot back. An adult male from the group that was allegedly shooting back has also been charged with second-degree murder. 

Police believe a bullet from the second suspect’s gun struck and killed 43-year-old mother Lisa Lopez-Galvan. 

The murder suspect who has been released from the hospital has a bandage on the right side of his face in his booking photo. According to court documents, the suspect pulled out his gun and began chasing someone before shooting at him. The 23-year-old man told investigators he was “just being stupid,” court documents stated. 

“Stupid, man. Just pulled a gun out and started shooting,” he said, according to the documents. “I shouldn’t have done that. Just being stupid.” 

The family of the suspect created a GoFundMe for him while he was in the hospital, saying that he needed help getting through a “tragic time” following the shooting, The New York Post reported. The fundraiser reportedly raised $100, but it has since been deleted.

Missouri prosecutors announced on Tuesday that two adult males were arrested and charged with murder in the Super Bowl parade shooting where one person was killed and 22 others were injured. Each of the male adults is charged with second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker. Both suspects are being held on $1 million bond. Two juveniles also face gun-related and resisting arrest charges in the shooting. 

Baker added on Tuesday that others who were involved in the shooting would be held accountable. 


“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day. Every single one,” the prosecutor said. “So while we’re not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”
