Gunmen At the Super Bowl Rally Shooting Faces Multiple Charges

Another alleged Kansas City parage shooter, Lyndell Mays, was indicted in March for the same felony charges as Miller.

According to the Associated Press, a police affidavit revealed that both Mays and Miller were strangers from two different groups who started shooting at each other due to an argument.

The fight allegedly began when the two parties got bothered by a staredown by individuals from each group.

Surveillance footage from the scene showed Mays and another person approaching the opposing group. Mays was the first to shoot despite being surrounded by a crowd, including children.

According to AP, the police affidavit revealed that Mays randomly targeted someone from the opposing group as they fled.

Miller, who was in the opposing group, initially claimed he ran after hearing gunfire and was shot in the back but later confessed to shooting four to five times after being shown video evidence.

Miller’s gunfire allegedly killed Lopez-Galvan, who was at the scene to watch the Kansas City Chiefs rally, officials confirmed.

Commenting on the charges, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said: “I do want you to understand: We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day. Every single one.”

He added: “So while we’re not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”

Families Of Kansas City Shooting Gunmen Set Up Fundraisers For Hospital Bills

After the shootout at the Kansas City Super Bowl parade, both gunmen were hospitalized, and relatives of Miller launched fundraisers for his hospital bills.

Jamie Batres, Miller’s mother, posted on Classful seeking funds for transportation to visit her son, sharing photos of him in his hospital bed.

She wrote on the site: “Kansas City Chiefs victim 18 years old fighting for his life. Mother is from Wichita Kansas and needs help with a hotel, food, and transportation to get back and forth to the hospital.”

“He is still in ICU fighting for his life,” she added, per the DailyMail.

Batres reportedly received no donations towards her $1,000 goal, and Miller’s sister, Haylee Scott, who created a GoFundMe for hospital expenses, as “times would be tough,” raised $85 before it was removed.

Similarly, the family of Mays, the other person accused, set up a fundraising page that has since been disabled.
