22 Confirmed Gunshot Victims In Chief Parade Shooting

Prosecutors announced on Tuesday that two men had been charged with murder in connection to the deadly shooting at the Super Bowl victory parade in Kansas City on February 14 that left one person dead and at least 22 injured, CBS News reported.

In a February 20 press conference, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said one of the men, Lyndell Mays, got into an argument with another individual at the parade that escalated, prompting Mays to draw a weapon. Other individuals nearby, including the second man charged, Dominic Miller, also drew their firearms.

According to Baker, based on the evidence, Miller fired the shot that killed 43-year-old local DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan.

Based on court documents, Lyndell Mays aggressively approached a group of men and pointed at them before he drew his firearm. He began to chase one of the men while pointing his weapon at him. This prompted the others to draw their weapons as well.

Mays was shot in the shootout that followed. He allegedly told investigators that he pulled his weapon after one of the men told him he was going to get him, according to the probable cause statement.

Based on a separate probable cause statement, Dominic Miller was captured on surveillance footage watching Mays and the other individual argue. After Mays pulled his weapon, Miller pulled out a firearm, chased one of the people involved in the argument, and began firing, striking Lopez-Galvan.

Miller was also shot in the subsequent shootout before fleeing the scene. He later told investigators at the hospital that he only fired in self-defense after someone shot at him.

Mays and Miller were both charged with second-degree murder and other offenses and were each held on a $1 million bond.

Last week, two juveniles were also charged in connection to the incident. Baker told reporters that those cases were being handled by a separate office.
