Kansas City Shooting

At least one person was killed and 21 others were wounded after a shooting broke out near Kansas City's Union Station following the conclusion of the Chiefs' celebratory Super Bowl parade. As of this writing, 15 victims had life-threatening injuries, with two in critical condition; eight of those wounded were children.

Officials said the shooting was neither terrorism nor a targeted attack. Gunfire erupted around 2 pm local time after at least two people began arguing near the end of the route where the Chiefs were celebrating Sunday's title win. An estimated 1 million people were in the larger area, with crowds making their way to the train station to leave when the incident occurred. 

Details on what led up to the altercation are still being pieced together; three people were said to have been detained by police. The victim who was fatally shot was said to be Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a local radio DJ. 

More broadly, gun violence in Kansas City has steadily rose in recent years. Last year was the deadliest on record in the city, with 185 homicides, more than 90% of which were firearm-related.
