Kansas City DJ Fatally Shot at Chiefs Super Bowl Parade

Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a beloved music lover and DJ in the Kansas City area, was tragically killed during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade on Wednesday. The parade, held at Union Station, turned into a scene of chaos when gunfire erupted, leaving 22 people injured, including Lopez-Galvan.

Lopez-Galvan, known for her vibrant mix of Tejano, Mexican, Spanish, R&B, and hip-hop music, was a pioneer as one of the few Latina DJs in the area. She played at various events, including weddings, quinceañeras, and even volunteered as a radio program host at KKFI-FM.

Described as an extrovert and a devoted Catholic, Lopez-Galvan was passionate about helping job seekers find employment. She worked at a local staffing firm, where she connected individuals with light manufacturing companies. Her selfless nature was evident as she would often go above and beyond to assist those in need.

Lopez-Galvan’s roots in Kansas City ran deep. Her father founded the city’s first mariachi group, Mariachi Mexico, in the 1980s, and her family has been actively involved in the local Latino community. She attended Bishop Miege, a Catholic high school, and previously worked as a clerk in a police department.

The tragic loss of Lopez-Galvan has left her tight-knit circle of friends and family devastated. Her brother, Beto Lopez, expressed his grief during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” emphasizing the senselessness of the act that took his sister’s life.

As the community mourns the loss of this vibrant and caring individual, plans are underway to organize a vigil or memorial to honor Lopez-Galvan’s memory. Her impact on the lives of those around her, both through her music and her selflessness, will not be forgotten.

Authorities have detained three individuals in connection with the shooting, and police are urging anyone with information to come forward. The investigation into the incident is ongoing, as the community seeks answers and justice for the victims.
