KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — Two more suspects have been charged Tuesday in the shooting that followed the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade and rally on Feb. 14.

Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced Tuesday that Dominic M. Miller, of Kansas City, and Lyndell Mays, of Raytown, Missouri, have both been charged with second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.

Charging documents say Miller and Mays attended the parade and rally last week armed with firearms.

Mays allegedly got into an argument with someone else after the rally. Evidence so far doesn’t show any previous contact or prior knowledge between these two people, prosecutors said.

The argument escalated quickly, Peters Baker said, and Mays allegedly pulled out a handgun. Almost immediately, prosecutors say others, including Miller, pulled out guns and started shooting.

Peters Baker declined to comment Tuesday on how many shooters in total were involved, but said they’re determined to hold each one accountable.

While both these men are accused in the shooting, prosecutors say it was Miller who shot and killed Lisa Lopez-Galvan.

Miller and Mays were both injured in the shooting, according to court records, and first responders took them to local hospitals.

They were both still hospitalized as of Tuesday, the prosecutor said, but are considered in custody. Both suspects are being held on $1 million bonds. 

These two suspects are adults, Peters Baker said Tuesday. Their charges come a few days after two minors were charged in family court on gun-related offences and resisting arrest. The minors haven’t yet been identified because they haven’t been certified to stand trial as adults.

A total of 23 people were shot, and half were under the age of 16. One woman, Lopez-Galvan, died from her injuries.

Lopez-Galvan’s family released the following statement Tuesday after news of the new charges:

On behalf of the Lopez-Galvan family, we are grateful to the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office led by Jean Peters Baker and her amazing team of highly experienced and dedicated prosecutors. We also want to thank the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department and all other law enforcement departments involved in this investigation. The effort and dedicated hours spent to expeditiously investigate this senseless act of violence is extremely commendable.

It is reassuring for our family and the entire community to know that this joint team effort has resulted in the identification of the suspects involved. Though it does not bring back our beloved Lisa, it is comforting to know that the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office and the KCPD made it a top priority to seek justice for Lisa, the other shooting victims, those who had to witness this tragedy unfold and the Kansas City community.

Over the weekend, Children’s Mercy Hospital said it released all patients that were treated in the aftermath of the shooting.

Additionally, Patrick and Brittany Mahomes visited some of the kids who were recovering from the shooting, and Taylor Swift donated $100,000 to a GoFundMe set up for Lopez-Galvan’s family.

There’s also been an outpouring of community support, with thousands donated to the #KCStrong Fund to help the victims.

On Monday, Missouri’s Republican-led House on a bipartisan vote passed a ban on celebratory gunfire in cities following debate that ranged from tearful to angry. A similar measure was passed last year as part of a sweeping crime-related bill, but GOP Gov. Mike Parson vetoed the legislation. He cited issues with other crime provisions in the bill unrelated to celebratory gunfire.
