Gunfire at Chiefs parade

Postby The Black Forrest » Wed Feb 14, 2024 1:33 pm

After the celebration was winding down, shots fired in a nearby garage. Four people injured. People running, police with guns drawn. Somebody captured.

Details are all over the place.

Just heard more then four injured….

Yeah wtf. Just heard about this on my way home from work- couldn't go to the parade as I had work.

Saw a video of people chasing down and tackling the shooter.

The police are supposed to give an update soon.

Gun slinging confederate loving people would never be a San Francisco 49ers fan. A Taylor Swift conspiracy theorist? Oh my yes.

But the very little I've read because I no longer watch the coverage unfold on things like this it seems like a shoot out or crime related shooting rather than a 'fuck these people' style. Probably wrong, but I don't get points for guessing right or wrong.

I want to say that this is just some yellow journalism (Clickbait) stretching the truth a bit as it was after the Super Bowl, but since this was pretty recent i think it's best if we wait for more info to come out.

Words truly cannot describe how devastating this incident is. I was not at Union Station but I do live in Kansas City. We still don’t know the shooter’s motives (I don’t think it was a terrorist), but children seemed disproportionately affected. You never assume this will happen in your area, but it did. It is a tragedy, and my heart goes out to those who were injured, but even just saying that feels cheap

It’s hard to not politicize this event, but America as had shootings like these for decades and politicians with a partisan agenda have prevented any real action from guns taken away from the wrong hands

And it's only been a year since MSU was the scene of a massacre. I just read about the anniversary of that shooting today.

Apparently at least 9 children between the ages of 6 and 15 were injured. All are expected to make full recoveries.

The final number I have been hearing is 22 people shot. 1 confirmed dead by the police, another confirmed dead by the radio station she worked for and the Kansas City star. 3 people are in custody. At least 1 was chased and tackled by people at the event.
