In the aftermath of the mass shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade on February 14, 2024, Brittany Mahomes took to her Instagram Stories to share her thoughts and prayers for the city and the nation at large.

“Shooting people is never the answer. Praying for Kansas City and America in general, this is rough,” she expressed.

“Highly embarrassed and disappointed in this is, Super Bowl wins will never be the same because of this. It’s devastating. Lives lost and people injured during something that was supposed to be a celebration. Horrible and traumatizing. So many prayers going to the families involved.”

The shooting, which occurred at Union Station in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, brought the festivities to an abrupt halt. Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves, in a press conference, confirmed one fatality and up to 22 wounded individuals, with three suspects in custody.

Among the attendees of the parade were members of the Chiefs organization, many accompanied by their families. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, alongside his wife Brittany, had been present at the event and later shared his prayers for Kansas City on social media.

Before the tragic incident unfolded, the parade had been a joyous affair, drawing an estimated one million fans, as reported by ABC News.

Brittany Mahomes had shared a moment of Valentine’s Day cheer with her husband Patrick, posting a photo of him presenting her with a rose.

“He didn’t forget,” she playfully remarked.

As the mother of two young children, Sterling and Bronze, Brittany had been reveling in the celebrations of Kansas City’s consecutive Super Bowl victories.

However, the shooting prompted an official statement from the Chiefs organization expressing condolences and confirming the safety of their players, staff, and their families.

Mayor Quinton Lucas, who had been enjoying the parade festivities before the tragedy struck, acknowledged the somber turn of events during a news conference.

“Today was tragic for everyone who was part of it,” he remarked, highlighting the unfortunate reality of becoming statistics in a nation plagued by mass shootings.

With the motive behind the shooting still unknown, Chief Graves appealed to the public for any information or eyewitness accounts that could aid in the investigation.

Videos circulated on social media capturing the chaos of the event, including one showing Chiefs fans tackling a suspected shooter.

Authorities are currently scrutinizing the detained individuals to ascertain their involvement, with the community grappling with the aftermath of a day meant for celebration turning into one marred by tragedy and loss.
