UPDATE: The latest updates from officials say that 22 total persons were shot, and half of those injured were children aged 6-15. One person was fatally shot on site and has been publicly identified: Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a mother of two and a local DJ at KKFI 90.1 FM in Kansas City. Three people were apprehended by police and remain in custody although they've not been identified nor has a motive been established for the shooting.

The Kansas City Chiefs victory parade scheduled for Wednesday near Union Station was shut down early due to shots being fired at or near the event. Kansas City police were doing their best to keep the massive crowds safe and secure the scene while also trying to ascertain who was involved and what sort of threat was posed.

The shooting began shortly after several Chiefs players had been able to address the crowd of Chiefs fans after the parade route was finished that began at 6th St. and Grand Blvd. and ended at Union Station. From there, Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes, Chris Jones and others had fun hyping up the crowd and celebrating a third Super Bowl win in five seasons and then came the police report that shots had been fired and the crowd began to disperse.
