The Pittsburgh Steelers organization issued a statement on their social media platforms on Wednesday evening after a tragic shooting occurred to the Super Bowl parade for the Kansas City Chiefs. Multiple NFL teams, including the Steelers, took to social media to offer their support for the victims, families, the Chiefs organization, and Kansas City.

“Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, the Kansas City community, and Chiefs Kingdom,” the team said.

The celebration took place near Union Station, which is an Amtrak station in the middle of the city. Shots rang out near the end of the parade to the west of Union Station, forcing the crowd to displace throughout the nearby area. Initially, all those inside Union Station were told to stay in place. Three suspects were apprehended following the incident.

According to Fox4 in Kansas City, nearly 30 people were injured in the shooting, and one is dead, according to information from hospital officials from around the city. Children’s Mercy Hospital confirmed that they had treated 12 people, including 11 children, and nine of them were being treated for gunshot wounds, but in a recent update, they believed that all were expected to recover. Meanwhile, University Health confirmed that 12 patients received treatment, including eight for gunshot wounds, including two people in critical condition. St. Luke’s Hospital treated one person for a gunshot wound in critical condition, while three others walked in with non-gunshot wound-related injuries.
