Multiple people were shot and at least one was killed during a parade in Kansas City celebrating the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win.

Gunfire erupted near the end of the parade route west of Union Station. Bystanders tackled one alleged shooter and pinned him down until police arrived and made an arrest.

“I’m angry at what happened today,” Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves said.

“The people who came to this celebration should expect a safe environment. … Because of bad actors … this tragedy occurred, even in the presence of uniformed law enforcement officers.”

At least four men were placed in handcuffs by law enforcement.

The police chief said 10-15 people were injured but no children were believed to be victims.

Officials believe the shooting was crime-related, not an act of terrorism.

The mayor said all Chiefs players, coaches and staff were safe.

The governor, who attended, said state law enforcement was assisting and thoughts were with the victims.

“Governor & First Lady Parson were in attendance when shots were fired near Union Station in KC,” Governor Mike Parson’s office stated.

“They are safe and secure. State law enforcement personnel are assisting local authorities in response efforts. As we wait to learn more, our hearts go out to the victims.”

“Praying for Kansas City,” Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes wrote on X.
