Mother Sets Up GoFundMe for Accused Kansas City Super Bowl Parade Shooter

The mother of Lyndell Mays, one of the accused shooters involved in the tragic incident at the Kansas City Super Bowl parade, has set up a GoFundMe campaign to support her son during this difficult time. Teneal Burnside created the online fundraiser, showcasing Mays lying in a hospital bed, recovering from the nine bullet wounds he sustained during the shootout he allegedly confessed to initiating.

The now-deleted fundraiser described Mays’ condition and emphasized the pain and sadness that overshadowed what was meant to be a joyous occasion for many attendees. Before being charged with second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon, the campaign had managed to raise $100 for Mays’ medical expenses.

According to court documents, Mays and Dominic Miller, the other accused shooter, engaged in an argument that escalated into the shooting amidst the thousands of revelers. A female friend of Mays informed the police that a group of individuals confronted them, questioning Mays’ intentions for looking at them.

The probable cause statement revealed that Mays confronted the group in an aggressive manner, pointing his finger at them. Surveillance footage captured Mays pulling out his gun and chasing an unarmed individual, subsequently firing shots. In response, others in the vicinity drew their weapons, leading to a chaotic exchange of gunfire.

Mays allegedly admitted to being the first to pull his gun and initiate the shooting, even though the area was crowded with children. He claimed that the others started shooting only after he had fired his weapon. When questioned about his actions, Mays expressed regret, acknowledging that he had acted foolishly.

Tragically, Lisa Lopez Gavlan, a 43-year-old mother of two, lost her life in the incident when a bullet fired by Miller struck her. Additionally, twenty-two others sustained injuries during the shooting. Both Mays and Miller are currently being held on a $1 million bond.
