Taylor Swift Donates to Victims’ Fund Following Kansas City Parade Shooting

Of the 22 individuals wounded by gunfire during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl victory parade on Wednesday, police disclosed that more than half of the victims are below the age of 16.

The victims’ ages span from eight to 47 years old. Among them, the deceased has been identified as Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan, a local DJ and mother of two.

A GoFundMe campaign initiated by Ms. Lopez-Galvan’s family garnered over $190,000 in donations, with singer Taylor Swift contributing a significant portion. Swift, who attended the Super Bowl to support her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, made two donations of $50,000 each to the fundraiser. On the official GoFundMe page, Swift remains the top donor, offering her “deepest sympathies and condolences.”

Initially, Kansas City Police named three individuals for questioning but have since released one. As of Friday morning, the remaining suspects, both juveniles, are still under custody.

“The two juveniles are being held in custody while we work with juvenile prosecutors to review the investigative findings and determine applicable charges,” stated a Kansas City Police spokesperson to The Independent.
