Two men have been charged with felony murder on Tuesday in the mass shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration last week.

Lyndell Mays of Raytown (Mo.) and Dominic M. Miller of Kansas City each face one count of second-degree murder, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced in an afternoon news conference.

Mays and Miller also have been charged with two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon. They are both being held on $1 million bond.

Local radio personality Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed in the shooting and at least 39 others were injured, per the Kansas City Star.

Per Peters Baker, Mays was involved in an argument with another person and drew a handgun. Miller and others, in turn, responded by drawing their weapons, but Miller’s weapon allegedly fired and killed Lopez-Galvan, Peters Baker said.

“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day — every single one,” the prosecutor said. “While we are not there yet on every single individual, we’re going to get there.”

Two juveniles were charged in connection to the shootings at the celebration.

The shootings occurred outside popular Union Station on Wednesday on a day in which roughly 1 million people turned out to celebrate Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11. There were more than 800 police officers in the vicinity.
