Kansas City Police Department has been slammed for keeping up a post that featured a video of celebrating crowds with the caption ‘you look incredible at the parade,’ after shots were fired at the Chiefs Super Bowl Parade.

In a post shared on X, formerly Twitter, Kansas City PD posted a drone footage of the victory celebration on Wednesday and wrote: ‘Kansas City, you look incredible at the Chiefs parade. We are honored to serve you on the ground and overhead.’ 

Moments after the police posted the tweet, up to three gunmen, all of whom have since been detained, opened fire inside Union Square on what should have been a triumphant day for the city following the Chiefs’ victory in Las Vegas on Sunday. 

The post has since gone viral, with social media users slamming the authorities for maintaining the post for hours after at least one died and 29 injured with nine of them believed to be children during the shooting.

An angry user wrote: ‘Maybe get off Twitter and be prepared in case there’s a shooting or something??’ 

Another person chimed in, saying: ‘YALL REALLY DOUNG THAT WHEN IT WAS LITERALLY A SHOOTING AND TWO PEOPLE DIED???? KANSAS CITY YALL JUST SAD MAN.’ 

Many social media users asked the police to delete the insensitive post and paid tribute to those who were deceased and injured during the mass shooting.

Others have commented under the post, urgently requesting authorities to provide more updates on the shooters and victims, including at least nine children who were shot. 

At least 29 people were shot and one has been killed after gunmen opened fire inside Union Station shortly after 3:30 pm, according to Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves. 

Among the victims was Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a Kansas City DJ and mother of two, who died during surgery at a hospital from a gunshot wound to her abdomen. 

The shooting happened seconds after the team – including Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes – left the stage.

Children’s Mercy Kansas City said the hospital was treating 12 patients, including eleven kids, nine of which have gunshot wounds.

St. Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City received one gunshot patient in critical condition and three walk-ins with injuries that were not life-threatening, spokesperson Laurel Gifford said.

‘When you have this many casualties, it´s going to get spread out among a lot of hospitals so that you don´t overwhelm any single ER,’ she said.

In a press conference in the last hour, Police Chief Stacey Graves said: ‘We are working to determine if one of the three are the one that was in that video, where fans assisted police.’

Graves also said that firearms were recovered following the shooting, saying: ‘We have recovered firearms. I don’t have a number for you or a caliber.’

No charges have been announced, and police said no motive has been determined. Police have referred to the people in custody as being detained.

While Kansas City Fire Chief Ross Grundyson said that eight victims had immediately life-threatening injuries.

Police evacuated the train station as huge crowds fled in panic after the shots rang out, with up to one million people expected to have descended on Kansas City for the parade.

Fans were seen scrambling from the scene, with several people wheeled away in stretchers.

A different man in a red hoodie was also pictured being arrested, although it is unclear if he was one of those involved in the shooting.

Graves said at a press conference around two hours after the shooting that officers sprang into action and quickly apprehended the gunmen.

‘Officers ran towards danger, and we thank them for that,’ she said.

‘I’m angry at what happened today. People should expect a safe environment,’ Graves continued, noting that over 800 law enforcement were stationed at the parade.

Police said they were releasing all of those inside Union Station around 15 minutes after the shooting unfolded, but ordered crowds to remain away from the area.

Around an hour after the shooting, people inside the nearby Westin Hotel were ordered to take shelter as police raced toward the hotel.
