At a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Kansas City, Missouri, Chief of Police Stacey Graves said Wednesday's shooting stemmed from a dispute between several people and was not believed to be connected to terrorism. She did not elaborate on the relationship among those involved in the dispute.

Graves said two juveniles remain detained from yesterday's shooting. A third person reported in custody Thursday night has been released. Police have until Thursday afternoon to present a case for charges with the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney's office.

The FBI is partnering with KCPD on a website to allow people to submit information.

Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney Jean Peters Baker tweeted Thursday morning that she will use "every tool at (her) disposal" to address this tragedy.

Late Wednesday night, radio station KKFI posted that one of its DJs, Lisa Lopez-Galvan, died in the shooting.

As many as 23 other people — including nine children — were injured from gunfire. Additional people were reported injured as part of the event but not necessarily due to gunfire.

Support for students, families

Thursday marked the return to school for many students across the area, most of which had canceled class Wednesday so students could attend the Chiefs Champions Victory Parade.
