Kansas City, shots fired at the parade for the Chiefs’ victory in the Super Bowl.  One dead and at least 22 injured, three people arrested

Gunfire in Kansas City, Missouri, during the parade celebrating the Chiefs win the Super Bowl on Valentine’s Day. The provisional budget is growing by the hour. Now, according to the authorities, there is one dead and 22 injured, including 8 children. Police said they had arrested three armed people. For now there is no hypothesis on the motive, although it could be a gang-related incident.

It is difficult to think of a terrorist attack, even if the head of the House Intelligence Committee had just a few hours earlier Mike Turner had revealed the existence of a “serious national security threat” by asking the president Joe Biden to declassify all information so that Congress, the administration and all our allies can openly discuss the actions necessary to respond.”

The shooting occurred in the city center at the end of the parade for the third consecutive title won last Sunday by the Chiefs in Las Vegas against the San Francisco 49ers, in an event with a record audience thanks also to the Taylor Swift, girlfriend of the victorious tight end Travis Kelce. A

thousands of fans with the team’s red t-shirt celebrate the team, amidst music, drums and confetti. A few minutes after the parade ended, several shots were heard, causing panic among the crowd.

A general stampede began, hindered by the metal barriers installed to protect the procession. People ran away screaming and seeking shelter in side streets or throwing themselves to the ground. The police immediately raised the alarm via X, inviting people to move away from the epicenter of the shooting, Union Station. He then deployed reinforcements until the two alleged perpetrators of the attack were captured with the weapons still in their possession, the third a few hours later.

All the stars of the team were at the parade, including Travis Kelce. His Taylor, however, was absent: the fans were hoping for a surprise appearance at the last moment, like at the Super Bowl. But the iconic singer, fresh from some concerts in Japan, is already leaving for Melbourne, Australia, for three more stops on her Eras Tour. On the other hand, Kelce had brought her mother, Donna Kelcewho became the superstar of the NFL moms (the oldest son, Jason Kelceplays center for the Philadelphia Eagles).

Laura Kelly, the governor of Kansas, was present and was immediately evacuated from the area and is now “out of danger”, she said in a post on X.
