Two men charged with homicide in the Kansas City shooting that left one woman dead and 22 injured


Two men were charged with second-degree murder on Tuesday as part of the investigation into the shooting in Kansas City, Missouri, during a parade to celebrate the Chiefs' victory in the Super Bowl, which left one woman dead and 22 people injured.

The suspects, identified as Dominic Miller of Kansas City and Lyndell Mays of Raytown, also face two charges of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, according to a statement from the Jackson County prosecutor's office.

"According to court records, the defendants attended a Super Bowl parade and rally on February 14, 2024, and were armed with firearms," the statement said. "A verbal altercation occurred, and shots were fired without regard to the thousands of individuals in the area."

"Miller and Mays were struck by gunfire during the incident and have since remained hospitalized," the statement said.

They detailed that the arrests of the two individuals are in addition to the apprehension of two juveniles last week.

When authorities made the initial double arrest, the city's police chief, Stacey Graves, noted that "preliminary findings from the investigation had shown no ties to terrorism or violent extremists."

A few days ago, it was reported that the two young individuals linked to the shooting were detained in a juvenile detention center on charges related to the possession and use of firearms and resisting arrest, according to a Missouri court.

The woman killed in the shooting was a popular radio host, according to her station and friends.
