Two men have been accused of murder in connection with the shooting during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade, which resulted in the death of a woman and injuries to over 20 individuals last week.

Prosecutors identified the defendants as Dominic M. Miller from Kansas City and Lyndell Mays from Raytown. They are both facing charges of second-degree murder, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon, as per a statement from the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to the office, the defendants were armed with firearms during their attendance at the Super Bowl parade and rally on February 14, 2024. A verbal altercation escalated into gunfire, disregarding the safety of thousands of other people in the vicinity.

Previously, two minors were charged in connection with the downtown Kansas City shooting on February 14. However, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, during a press conference announcing the charges, did not specify if these minors had any association with the adults who are now facing charges.

The charged adults, who sustained injuries in the shooting and are still hospitalized, are being held on a $1 million bond.

Baker stated that preliminary evidence suggests the fatal shooting stemmed from a verbal dispute with an individual with whom the perpetrator had no prior connection.

Baker stated, "That argument very quickly escalated. Almost immediately, others pulled their firearms."

Court documents reveal that the altercation began with a comment about whether one person was staring at another.

The charging documents allege that four males approached Lyndell Mays, with one of them questioning him about what he was looking at, as they were unfamiliar with him.

Detective Grant Spiking wrote in the documents that Mays and a group of men engaged in a confrontation over why they were staring at each other.

According to prosecutors, firearms were drawn by individuals on both sides, some of which were retrieved from backpacks.

During the altercation, Dominic M. Miller allegedly opened fire, along with at least one other person. Prosecutors asserted that it was Miller's gunfire that struck Lisa Lopez-Galvan, who was attending the celebration of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory.

Lopez-Galvan, a mother of two and a local radio DJ, tragically lost her life, while 22 others, ranging in age from 8 to 47, sustained injuries.

Spiking stated in the documents that Mays admitted to firing his weapon, expressing regret over his actions. "Stupid, man," Mays is quoted as saying. "Just pulled a gun out and started shooting. I shouldn’t have done that. Just being stupid."

A Glock 9 mm handgun, reportedly stolen from a location in Kansas City, was found near Mays, as per Spiking.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Lopez-Galvan’s family expressed gratitude to Prosecutor Baker, her team, and the police for their efforts in seeking justice. They acknowledged that while nothing can bring back Lisa, they find comfort in knowing that justice is being pursued for her and the other victims, as well as for those who witnessed the tragic event and the entire Kansas City community.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, with Baker indicating that additional charges may be filed against other individuals involved.

“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day. Every single one,” Baker emphasized. “So, while we’re not there yet on every single individual, we’re gonna get there.”

Baker urged anyone with information about the shooting, especially those who were injured, to come forward.
