Friends of Lopez-Galvan confirmed her passing to The Kansas City Star, revealing that the mom of two passed away while in surgery. Lopez-Galvan suffered a gunshot wound to her abdomen.

“She was the most wonderful, beautiful person,” Lopez-Galvan’s friend, Lisa Lopez, told The Kansas City Star. “She was a local DJ. She did everybody’s weddings. We all know her. She was so full of life.”

Our thoughts are with Lopez-Galvan’s family during this truly devastating time.

The Star also reported how head coach for the Chiefs Andy Reid stayed to comfort a frantic teen during the shooting.

According to reports, Gabe Wallace, and his friend Hank Hunter were outside Union Station when the shooting began. Just sophomores in high school, Gabe and Hank got separated in the chaos, only to find each other again moments later, embracing each other and telling one another how much they love each other.


At this point, Gabe’s temple was covered in blood after he fell attempting to hop a fence while fleeing from danger.

“We were right up on the front of the fences, far left side, like right above the barricade,” Hank told the Star as he relived the terrifying experience. “… We heard shots and there were rumors going around. Everyone started getting down. And me and my friend Gabe, we jumped over the fences.”

That’s when Gabe heard, “boom, boom, like real quick,” and a security guard yelling at him. “The security guard was like, ‘Get over the damn fence right now. There’s a shooter.’”

After his “face nailed the concrete,” another security guard directed him into Union Station where several people, including Andy Reid, were there comforting people.

“Andy Reid was trying to comfort me, which was nice,” Gabe told The Star. “… He was kind of hugging me, just like, ‘Are you OK, man? Are you OK? Just please breathe.’ He was being real nice and everything.”

Donna Kelce also returned to Union Station after the team was quickly rushed to safety. “Everybody who was with the team, they got us out of there really fast,” she told The Star.
