Two Men Charged with Murder in Deadly Shooting at Kansas City Chiefs Parade

KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Two men are facing murder charges in connection with the deadly shooting during last week’s Kansas City Chiefs parade celebration. The suspects, Lyndell Mays and Dominic Miller, have been accused of their involvement in a shooting that resulted in the tragic death of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a 43-year-old mother of two and local radio DJ, as well as injury to 22 other people near Union Station.

According to Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, the shooting stemmed from an argument at the parade, which quickly escalated. Mays allegedly drew a handgun during the altercation, prompting others, including Miller, to also pull out their firearms. Surveillance video revealed Miller watching the argument before chasing and appearing to start shooting at one of the individuals involved. Tragically, Lopez-Galvan was caught in the chaos and fatally shot.

Both Mays and Miller are facing charges of second-degree murder and other offenses and are being held on a $1 million bond. More charges could still be filed as the investigation remains ongoing, according to the prosecutor.

The shooting, which also involves two juvenile suspects facing gun-related and resisting-arrest offenses, has deeply impacted the Kansas City community. Authorities are working to hold all responsible parties accountable for their actions during the chaotic event, while the family of the victim expressed gratitude for the charges brought against the suspects.

As the investigation continues, authorities are focused on uncovering the full circumstances that led to the shooting. The tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the potential consequences of altercations and conflicts escalating in public spaces, leaving a lasting impact on the families affected and the wider community.
