Two juveniles charged in relation to Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade shooting

Two juveniles were charged Thursday with crimes connected to the shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade on Wednesday, according to a Jackson County Family Court news release.

The juveniles are being detained in the county’s juvenile detention center “on gun-related and resisting arrest charges,” authorities said Friday.

Additional charges are expected in the case as the active investigation continues, according to the news release.

The shooting appeared to stem from a dispute between several people, police said Thursday. One person, who police identified as Elizabeth Galvan, was killed and at least 22 others were wounded, Kansas City Police Department chief Stacey Graves said Thursday, adding that the police detained three subjects in relation to the shooting, two of whom were under the age of 18.

Half of the shooting victims are under the age of 16 and all are under age 47, Graves said Thursday. All victims were transported to one of three hospitals: Children’s Mercy, University Health and Saint Luke’s. Children’s Mercy treated 11 children, aged 6 to 15, and one adult, said Stephanie Meyer, the senior vice president and chief nursing officer of the hospital, in a news conference Thursday.

Nine of those children were treated for gunshot wounds and the others were treated for what Meyer called “incidental injuries.” As of Thursday, only three patients had not yet been discharged, Meyer said, adding that the three children who were still at the hospital are expected to make a full recovery.

Under Missouri law, hearings for alleged offenses involving juveniles are not open to the public.
