Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, posted to Instagram in the aftermath of a mass shooting at the team’s Super Bowl parade.

 

 

She was one of the people walking the streets and participating in the event which came to an end with the sound of gunfire at Union Station – where celebrations had been taking place.

In two Instagram stories, she wrote, ‘Shooting people is never the answer. Praying for Kansas City and America in general, this is rough.’

She continued, saying, ‘Highly embarrassed and disappointed in this, Super Bowl wins will never be the same because of this, it’s devastating.

‘Lives lost and people injured during something that was suppose[d] to be a celebration.

‘Horrible and traumatizing. So many prayers going to the families involved.’

The shooting led to one person being killed and 21 being injured – including nine injured children.

Two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting, including one who was tackled to the ground.

Speaking to Chris Cuomo on NewsNation, Casey Filter described the moment she moved a gun from one of the suspects out of the way of a walking crowd of people. She told the outlet: ‘I think we just did fight or flight and we just did what we felt we needed to do in that moment.

‘I don’t think we could have just walked away being right there like that.

Trey Filter, her husband who helped tackle the shooter to the ground, added: ‘On our way home, we were realizing how close we were to being involved in the initial shooting. Of course, we couldn’t have gotten much closer to the gun there. It’s just really a lot to process and be grateful for.’

The Chiefs had been celebrating winning a third Super Bowl title in five seasons – the fourth in the team’s history.

One player, Trey Smith, recounted the events in an appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday.

 

The day started just like last year’s parade. I just remember the security guards ushering us through the door quickly, like ”hurry up, hurry up, hurry up,”’ Smith, the Chiefs’ starting right guard, told Good Morning America on Thursday.

‘It’s, ”okay, this is not a joke… this is a life or death situation.”’

Smith said he was forced to run for his life and hide in a closet while helping to guide others to safety.

‘Right before I ran in there, there was a little kid in front of me so I just grabbed him and yanked him in, ”you’re hopping in there with me, buddy,”’ Smith said. ‘I don’t know how many people there were in the closet – maybe 20 plus?’

As the team drove away from the scene, Smith was particularly helpful to one frightened child by handing him a WWE championship belt that the offensive lineman had been wearing in the parade.

‘I just handed him the belt, ”hey, you’re the champion. No-one’s gonna hurt you man, we got your back.”

The shooting occurred despite the presence of over 800 police officers in and around Union Station alone.

It is the latest sports celebration in the U.S. to be marred by gun violence, following a shooting that wounded several people last year in Denver after the Nuggets’ NBA championship, and gunfire last year at a parking lot near the Texas Rangers’ World Series championship parade.
