Mom-of-two killed at Super Bowl parade shooting – tragic details

While last weekend’s Super Bowl was a cause for celebration for football fans, the event had a tragic ending for many families in Kansas City.

The Chiefs’ nail-biting game against the San Francisco 49ers ended in victory for the Missouri-based team – with celebrities like Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, and Reba McEntire watching on in anticipation.

Locals in Kansas City celebrated the momentous occasion with a parade, which all came crashing down after a mass shooting claimed the life of one woman and injured at least 20 people – the majority of them children, CNN reports.
