Kansas City disc jockey Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed in the shooting at the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade.

In a statement on its Facebook page, KKFI 90.1 FM confirmed Lopez-Galvan’s death, remarking that the “senseless act has taken a beautiful person from her family and this KC community.”

Lopez-Galvan, a mother of two, co-hosted “Taste of Tejano” for KKFI since March 2022.

“It is with sincere sadness and an extremely heavy and broken heart that we let our community know that KKFI DJ Lisa Lopez, host of Taste of Tejano lost her life today in the shooting at the KC Chiefs’ rally. Our hearts and prayers are with her family,” the statement reads. “We encourage anyone who feels they saw something to reach out to law enforcement at 816 234 5111.”

A followup message urges listeners, friends and family to “please keep our Lisa and the Lopez family in your prayers.”

A private mobile DJ for more than 15 years, the bilingual Lopez-Galvan played “for all types of crowds,” reads a statement from KKFI, carried “plenty of music knowledge” and was a lifelong music fan. “For Lisa music is life and a source of happiness,” reads her biog.

Earlier, officials reported that one person died and at least 21 others were wounded in the incident west of Union Station, which occurred towards the end of a parade in Kansas City, Mo, celebrating the Chiefs’ win in the Super Bowl last weekend. According to reports, police detained three suspects.

A statement from the Chiefs reads, “We are truly saddened by the senseless act of violence that occurred outside of Union Station at the conclusion of today’s parade and rally. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and all of Kansas City.” All of the franchise’s players, coaches, staff and their families are said to be “safe and accounted for.”

Several hospitals in the area treated the wounded, including eight with “immediately” life-threatening injuries and seven with life-threatening injuries, according to the Kansas City Fire Department.
