Patrick and Brittany Mahomes made a heartfelt visit to Children’s Mercy Hospital, where they spent time with several young victims, including the Reyes family. The Reyes sisters, both wounded in the legs during the chaos, underwent surgery to address their injuries. Expressing their gratitude, the Reyes family conveyed their appreciation to the hospital staff and the Mahomeses for their unwavering care and support.

Tragically, the shooting resulted in the loss of one life and left 22 children injured. As the victims continued their recovery, authorities charged two juveniles in connection with the incident. These individuals face charges related to firearms possession and resisting arrest, and they are currently held in the county’s Juvenile Detention Center. The ongoing investigation by the Kansas City Police Department suggests that further charges may be forthcoming.

The goal was $75,000. 🙏
