The Kansas City Chiefs celebrated their Super Bowl 58 championship with a parade and rally in the city yesterday. As with all such events, there was a lot of joy, enthusiasm, and optimism that they’d be able to do it again next year. But before the event was over, happiness was replaced by fear.

As the Chiefs team was getting ready to exit the stage, shots rang out. The latest update stated 22 people were injured, 20 of them children, with one person being killed. ABC News reports Kansas City radio DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan died in the shooting. Three people were arrested in connection to the shootings, but as of now no motive has been given and the suspects have not been identified.

This latest senseless shooting ruined a celebratory event, injured many, traumatized countless more, and ended the life of Lopez-Galvan. It is heartbreaking. It is unacceptable.

Sending love to Kansas City and all of those affected by yesterday’s tragedy.
