Two juvenile suspects related to the shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs‘ Super Bowl parade have been charged, according to reports.

Officials from the Jackson County Family Court department in Missouri said the unidentified minors are currently facing gun violence and resisting arrest charges–but more may come.

„The juveniles are currently held in secure detention at the juvenile detention facility due to allegations of weapons possession and resisting arrest,“ the court said in a statement. „It is expected that additional charges will be forthcoming as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues.“

More than 20 people were shot, and one- Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a popular local radio DJ- lost her life in the mass shooting.

According to a Kansas City police spokesperson, a third minor who was arrested that day was released on Thursday after investigators determined he was not involved in the shooting.

Instead, the shooting appeared to be „a dispute among several individuals that ended with gunfire,“ Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves told reporters during a Thursday press conference.

„Preliminary investigation results have indicated that there is no connection to terrorism or domestic violent extremism,“ the chief added.

23 people- including at least 11 children- were struck by bullets. According to Graves, the youngest victim was eight years old.

The juvenile defendants may face a mandatory certification hearing to determine whether they will be tried as adults, The Kansas City Star reports.

In a statementsaid the Chiefs, they are „truly saddened by the senseless act of violence that occurred, and their „sympathies go out to the victims, their families, and the entire Kansas City.“

This is the area’s 25th mass shooting in the past five years. It is also not the only championship celebration marred by gun violence. At a mass shooting during the Denver Nuggets‘ NBA title celebration, at least ten people were injured, and near the Texas Rangers World Series victory parade, shots were fired.
