Missouri state prosecutors said Tuesday that two adults have been formally charged with murder in connection with last week's shooting at the Super Bowl parade celebrating the Kansas City Chiefs , leading to the death of a woman and the injury of 22 others.

Both adults were charged with second degree murder. They have since been hospitalized, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said during a press conference.

The new charges were filed after two juveniles were detained last week for illegal possession of a firearm and resisting arrest. Authorities have indicated that other charges could also be filed.

Police officers said a dispute between several people led to the shooting, which occurred despite the presence of 800 police officers to ensure security at the event.

The 22 injured ranged in age from 8 to 47, according to Kansas City Police Department Chief Stacey Graves.

Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a mother of two and host of the radio show Taste of Tejano, has died.< /p>

This shooting is the most recent to occur during sporting events in the United States. Several people were injured in a shooting during the parade of the Nuggets, then NBA champions, last year in Denver.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said we may need to revisit how we celebrate a sports team winning a championship, even though he promised last week that the City would continue to celebrate its victories.

Moreover, the St. Patrick's Day parade, which will take place next month, will indeed take place, assured Mayor Lucas.
