Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce donate $200K to victims of KC parade shooting – Business Insider

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have made generous charitable donations to the victims of the shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl victory parade, which occurred on February 14.
Early on Friday, the “Anti-Hero” singer donated $100,000 to a GoFundMe page set up for the family of Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan, a mother-of-two who was killed in the mass shooting. 
Her two separate donations of $50,000 — confirmed to Variety by the singer’s representatives to be legitimate — pushed the total past its goal of raising $75,000 for the victim’s family. 
“Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift,” the singer wrote on the Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan Memorial page.
Hours later, Swift’s boyfriend then matched her donation by making two $50,000 contributions to a separate GoFundMe page, raising money for the Reyes family and their 10-year-old and eight-year-old daughters, who were shot during the tragedy. 
Kelce’s donation, which was confirmed by his reps to Today, was made through his charity, Eighty-Seven & Running.
Like Swift’s donation, Kelce’s generous contribution helped the Reyes family achieve their goal of raising $100,000, which they wrote would help provide vital financial support for the girls’ physical and mental recovery.
Following the shooting, which occurred on Wednesday after thousands gathered for a rally to celebrate his team’s back-to-back Super Bowl win, the Chiefs tight end wrote on X, formerly Twitter, that he was “heartbroken.”
I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today. My heart is with all who came out to celebrate with us and have been affected. KC, you mean the world to me.
As Business Insider previously reported, during a press conference earlier this week, Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves confirmed that three people, including two minors, had been detained following the shooting. 
Late on Friday, the two teenage suspects were charged with resisting arrest and “gun-related” offenses in connection with a shooting, The New York Times reports. The third individual was released without charge.
A spokeswoman for the Office of the Juvenile Officer in Jackson County, Mo., told the publication that additional charges are “expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues.”
In total, the shooters injured 22 people; Lopez-Galvan was the sole fatality, according to NBC News.
