Reacting to the sad incident, Patrick Mahomes took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to write, “Praying for Kansas City.”

The quarterback’s wife, Brittany, also spoke about the incident in a similar way as her husband. She shared a message on her Instagram stories: “Shooting is never the answer. Praying for Kansas City & America in general, this is rough.

Another member of the Kansas City Chiefs, Drue Tranquill, posted a message that read, “Please join me in prayer for all the victims in this heinous act. Pray that doctors & first responders would have steady hands & that all would experience full healing.”

Two Armed Suspects Are Reportedly In Custody

During a news conference, Kansas City Police Chief Graces spoke in detail about the shooting at the parade, noting that there are currently two armed suspects in custody.

“I’m angry at what happened today. The people who came to this celebration should expect a safe environment,” Graces said. She revealed that there were still victims going into the hospital but noted that she did not believe any of the victims were children.

When questioned whether there were multiple shooting scenes, Graves said, “That is still an active thing. That is a lot of ground to cover, as you know, the size of Union Station. I will tell you we have located that crime scene on the west side of Union Station. As far as in the front of
[the station], that is still under investigation.”

Graves added, per Deadline, “We have crime-scene investigators as well as detectives. We had a lot of our Assault Squad detectives and our homicide detectives that were actually in uniform today working the assignment, so not only did you have a uniformed presence immediately responding to the scene, rendering aid, running toward the scene, you also had detectives immediately on the scene who are still there and actively working.”

More Shooting Victims Confirmed

According to the Fire Chief of the Kansas City Fire Department, Ross Grundyson, the number of shooting victims has increased to at least 22.

Grundyson said in a news conference “that a total of 22 gunshot victims, one of those was a fatality. We had eight with we considered to be immediately life-threatening patients, we had seven life-threatening injuries, and we had six with minor injuries.”

He noted that the people with life-threatening injuries have been “transported to hospitals within 10 minutes, so [they] felt the response was certainly adequate and appropriate.”
