Two minors were charged in the city of Kansas City after the shootings that left one dead and around twenty injured Wednesday during the parade in honor of the Chiefs, Super Bowl champions.

Stuck in a detention center for juvenile delinquents, these two suspects, whose identity has not been communicated, are currently being prosecuted for possession of a weapon and refusal to comply.

However, additional charges are expected in the future as the Kansas City Police investigation continues, said a release from the Jackson County Court, which includes part from Kansas City, Missouri.

Police are looking for others people who may have been involved and calls on witnesses, victims and people with video on their phones to come forward.

A woman, mother and popular disc jockey, died in the shooting as the parade and rally ended; 22 other people were injured, more than half of whom were minors.

Friday , two victims were still in critical condition and one in serious condition. Most of the injured miners have been released from hospital and are expected to recover.

Still, the emotional recovery is only just beginning in a community horrified that two minors could cause such trauma. Police believe an argument between several people led to the shooting.

Police forces ;#x27;order had arrested and placed three people in custody, before releasing one of them.

The Chiefs won their third Super Bowl in five years on Sunday, beating the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime.

On Wednesday, the winning team paraded in a red double-decker bus through Missouri's largest city. The parade ended with a rally in front of the huge Union Station. That's when the shots rang out.

A lot of people thought they heard fireworks. Eventually, some hid for shelter. Others jumped over barriers and ran, many with children.

Au- Beyond the gunshot wounds, several people were treated in hospitals for injuries sustained in the crush. There were so many personal belongings left at the scene that the police opened a site for people to try to find what they had left behind.

The shooting occurred despite the presence of more than 800 police officers in the area, including on top of surrounding buildings, said Mayor Quinton Lucas, who was present with his wife and mother, and who ran to safety when the shots rang out.

Kansas City has long struggled with gun violence. In 2020, it was among nine cities targeted by the federal Justice Department in an effort to crack down on violent crime. In 2023, the City tied a record 182 homicides, most of which involved guns.
