Four people, including two minors, were charged in connection to a mass shooting after the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade that left one person dead and at least 22 injured.

The big picture: Two adults were charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said on Tuesday.

  • The adults charged are each being held on a $1 million bond and face potential life sentences, Peters Baker said.
  • The two minors who had been charged on Thursday were being held on gun-related and resisting arrest charges.
  • The shooting on Feb. 14 appeared to stem from a dispute between several people and had "no nexus to terrorism or homegrown violent extremism," police said.

Details: Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a mother of two and a prominent Hispanic DJ, died as a result of the shooting.

  • At least half of the victims were under 16.

Zoom out: There have been 50 mass shootings in 2024 so far, per the Gun Violence Archive.
