KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI – FEBRUARY 14: People take cover during a shooting at Union Station during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl LVIII victory parade on February 14, 2024 in Kansas City, Missouri. Several people were shot and two people were detained after a rally celebrating the Chiefs Super Bowl victory.

Investigators successfully identified Young by noting specific details, such as a distinctive backpack that was visible in various videos on social media.

Suspects Charges Felony Murder and Unlawful Use of Weapon

Young’s arrest comes after the charging of Lyndell Mays, 23, and Dominic Miller, 18, who were previously charged with second-degree felony murder and unlawful use of a weapon.

Prosecutors claim that Mays was responsible for the gunfire that killed Lopez-Galvan.

Based on  Missouri law, individuals who participate in a dangerous offense that results in a fatality can be held liable, regardless of whether they physically carried out the conduct.

Young’s arrest provides a much-needed sense of closure for a community still reeling from the horrific events of that day.

All those engaged in the shooting incident have been apprehended, but the investigation continues, and additional charges may be made.
