Lisa Lopez-Galvan, who hosted "A Taste of Tejano" on local radio station KKFI, died in the shooting, and 22 other victims — including several children — were injured.

“This senseless violence turned a day that should have been filled with joyous celebration into a tragedy,” Kelly said in a written statement. “Kansans and the entire Kansas City community are mourning the loss of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a DJ and mother of two from Shawnee. I’m grieving for her family and for all the victims and their loved ones.”

Donations for the victims and law enforcement have surpassed $1 million across three different charities and funds.
