Mom of Thug Arrested for Chiefs Parade Shooting Starts GoFundMe to Help Suspect Through ‘Tragic Time’

The mom of one of the thugs arrested for murder over the fatal shooting at the Kansas City Super Bowl parade has started a fundraising campaign to help her son through this “tragic time.”

Suspect Lyndell Mays is one of two adults who were charged Tuesday in connection with the February 15, 2024, shooting at the Chiefs’s Super Bowl celebration shooting.

The other suspect was identified by police as Dominic Miller.

The Associated Press pointed out that there was a dispute that led to the fatal shooting.

Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said that following the dispute, Mays allegedly “pulled his handgun first almost immediately.”

According to The New York Post, Mays’ mother, Teneal Burnside, launched a GoFundMe for her son’s medical bills and legal costs.

However, she has now deleted the page following a backlash.

But while the GoFundMe was still up, it included a photo of Mays in the hospital with gunshot wounds.

The text on the fundraising page said:

“He is in the ICU fighting for a recovery from several surgeries from going to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration with his older sister.”

Burnside also said on the page:

“Getting shot multiple times at a time that was [meant] to bring so much joy to so many has [brought] pain and sadness to all that was attending.”

The charges Mays currently faces include second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.

The fundraiser had reportedly raised $100 for Mays’ medical bills before it was taken down.

The suspected shooters, Mays and Miller, allegedly got into an argument before the shooting unfolded, causing chaos among thousands of revelers.

A female friend of Mays told police the opposing group of several individuals wanted to know why Mays was looking at them, court papers said.

Mays started jawing with the group, according to a probable cause statement obtained by The Post.

He was seen on surveillance footage approaching the group in an “aggressive” manner and later pointing his finger at them, the court docs said.

When Mays pulled his gun, he started to chase an unknown individual who appeared unarmed and shot at him.

The shots resulted in others drawing their guns, according to the legal papers.

The suspect would later allegedly admit to police that he pulled his gun first and began shooting first.

He opened fire even though he was in a crowded area that was packed with families and children.

“Mays confirmed that he drew his gun first … and started shooting, all because they said, ‘I’m going to get you,’ and to him, that meant, ‘I’m going to kill you,’” according to court documents obtained by The Post.

“Mays stated the other individuals started shooting only after [he] shot first.”

When investigators asked why he “advanced with them to begin with,” the alleged gunman replied, “Stupid, man. Just pulled a gun out and started shooting. I shouldn’t have done that. Just being stupid,” the docs stated.

After Mays flashed his weapon, several others “almost immediately” brandished their weapons, including Miller.

It was Miller who shot and killed 43-year-old mom of two Lisa Lopez-Galvan, prosecutors said.

Twenty-two others were injured in the shooting.

Both Mays and Miller are being held on a $1 million bond.
