All Kansas City Chiefs players, coaches and staff are safe, said Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. US President Joe Biden has been informed of the incident, the White House said. According to official information, the shots were fired near the train station near a parking garage. It was unclear whether the crime was connected to the victory parade. TV images showed how the event site was evacuated.

“Shops are being evacuated”

“The investigation has just begun. And we are working to clear all surrounding areas and businesses,” Police Chief Stacey Graves said at a news conference. She did not provide details about the arrested suspects. The police assume that there are no children among the injured.

Players and coaches traveled along a 3.22 kilometer route in a red double-decker bus. Since many schools remained closed for the day, there were also numerous children among the fans. “I’m praying for Kansas City,” wrote star quarterback Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs on X (formerly Twitter). In a statement, the NFL said it was deeply saddened by the senseless violence. “Our thoughts are with the victims and everyone affected.”

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 25:22 after overtime in Las Vegas on Sunday in an exciting National Football League (NFL) finale. The Chiefs had previously won the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1970, 2020 and 2023.

Pop superstar Taylor Swift did not accompany her boyfriend Travis Kelce at the parade, according to media reports. In the run-up to the Super Bowl, the singer made headlines because she traveled from Tokyo especially for the game. Swift’s next appearance is in Melbourne on Friday evening, so she has already traveled to Australia.
