This was the same location that the Chiefs hosted the 2023 NFL Draft. According to Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves, one person is dead and 22 others have been injured.

Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City is reporting that they have received 11 patients. And eight of them have gunshot wounds, according to Mark Steele, who is the University Health Chief Clinical Officer.

Russ Grundyson, the Kansas City Fire Chief, said at a press conference that eight suffered life threatening injuries. There is no other details on the others, who have been shot at this time.

The next of kin for the individual who passed away has not been identified yet.

Graves said that three people have been detained. At this time, no one has been charged in the incident.

And it is not clear of a motive at this time. Due to the early stages of the investigation, it is going to take time to determine a motive.

With the death of one individual, once the individual or individuals responsible for this incident is charged, they will more than likely face a murder charge. They could also face additional attempted murder charges.

Formal charges could be made against those responsible in the coming days.
