Taylor Swift has donated $100,000 (92,734 euros) to the family of the woman who died in a shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, on Wednesday. The shooting took place at the end of the parade for the victory of the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, the team of Swift’s beloved Travis Kelce.

A crowdfunding website is raising money for the family of 43-year-old Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan. That woman was hit in the stomach during the shooting and died during emergency surgery. According to the website (Friday around 8 p.m. Belgian time), 266,267 dollars (246,921 euros) have already been raised by more than 3,100 people. Two donations, each of $50,000, are in Taylor Swift’s name. Someone from her entourage confirmed to Variety magazine that these were indeed gifts from the singer.

The Kansas City Chiefs extended their Super Bowl title on Sunday, but the biggest star of the evening was next to the field. Swift took a short break from her successful world tour The Eras Tour to support Kelce. Since the relationship became known, the flagging popularity of the National Football League (NFL) has received a huge boost. Sunday’s Super Bowl became the second most-watched television program in American history, behind the 1969 moon landing.

Two minors charged

Two minors have also been charged in connection with the shooting. According to NBC News, these are “weapons-related charges and resisting arrest.” More charges are expected as the police investigation is ongoing. Initially, three people were arrested. The third suspect was released because he was not involved.
