Two adults charged for murder in connection to Kansas City parade shooting

Two adults were charged with second-degree felony murder in connection to the Kansas City parade shooting that left one person dead and 22 injured following the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory celebration.

Lyndell Mays, of Raytown, Mo., and Dominic Miller, of Kansas City, Mo., were also charged with several weapons counts, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, announced during a Tuesday press conference. While announcing the charges, she said both adults face other counts and were in the hospital after the shooting last week.

Prosecutors said the shooters did not know each other before the parade. An argument between several people on the scene led to the incident, according to police.

Mays pulled the gun first, but it was Miller who shot Lisa Lopez-Galvan, who died as a result, according to the prosecutors.

Separately, last week, two juveniles were detained on gun charges, but law enforcement said more penalties might be brought.

“I do want you to understand — we seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day. Every single one,” Peters Baker said. “So while we’re not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”

The shooting took one life and left 22 people injured, including at least eight children. The age range of the people injured was between eight and 47. It occurred on the west side of Union Station in downtown Kansas City, Mo., right after the parade celebrating the Chief’s NFL title was wrapping up. The shooting happened on the sixth anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which killed 17 people.

The Kansas City Chiefs said the organization was “saddened” by the “senseless act of violence when reacting to last week’s incident.”

If found guilty, the men each face a sentence of up to life in prison for the murder charges and are each being held on a $1 million bond.
