Travis Kelce ‘heartbroken’ over Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade shooting: ‘KC, you mean the world to me’

Kelce released a statement in which he called the events that took place on Wednesday a “tragedy.”

“I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today,” Kelce wrote on X. “My heart is with all who came out to celebrate with us and have been affected. KC, you mean the world to me.”

Kelce and the rest of his Kansas City teammates had just wrapped up a Super Bowl rally celebrating the team’s second consecutive title when gunfire rang out near Union Station.

The shots sent Chiefs fans diving for cover as gunfire came from just west of Union Station.

The team confirmed that all players, staff and their family members were safe and accounted for in a statement after the shooting.

The Chiefs called the incident a “senseless act of violence” and said that their “hearts go out to the victims, their families, and all of Kansas City.”

Police said at a press conference that three people were in custody in connection with the shooting.

Two of them were detained shortly after the shooting occurred.

 

The U.S. House of Representatives held a moment of silence for the victims of Wednesday’s shooting at the behest of Missouri and Kansas Reps. Sharice Davids, Mark Alford, Ann Wagner and Emanuel Cleaver.

The NFL expressed sadness over the day’s events.

“We are deeply saddened by the senseless shooting that occurred today at end of the rally in Kansas City for the Chiefs,” the league said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with the victims and everyone affected.

“We are grateful for the quick and thorough response of law enforcement and emergency personnel.”

More than 800 police officers had been at the rally when the shooting occurred.

The FBI was on the ground to assist with security for the event and was helping local law enforcement with its investigation, the bureau told the Kansas City Star.
