One dead, multiple injured in shooting near Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade, police say
  • One person is dead, and more than 20 were injured in a shooting, according to the Kansas City police chief.
  • Police responded to the incident near Union Station, where thousands celebrated the Chiefs' Super Bowl win.

At least one person is dead, and multiple people injured in a shooting following the Super Bowl victory parade in Kansas City, Missouri, on Wednesday, Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves confirmed during a press conference on Wednesday.

Police responded after shots were fired west of Union Station, near where thousands had gathered for a rally to celebrate the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl win on Sunday.

Three individuals have been detained as police investigate, Graves said at a second press conference on Wednesday evening.

Graves, at the press conference, said the number of people with gunshot wounds was 22, including the person who died.

At least eight children are among those shot, according to the Associated Press.

In a statement, President Joe Biden said he was praying for those wounded and killed in Kansas City and called for action against the "epidemic of gun violence."

"Today, on a day that marks six years since the Parkland shooting, we learned that three police officers were shot in the line of duty in Washington, DC, and another school shooting took place at Benjamin Mays High School in Atlanta," he said in the statement. "Yesterday marked one year since the shooting at Michigan State University. We've now had more mass shootings in 2024 than there have been days in the year."
