Police said the 22 people were injured in the shooting ranged between 8 and 47 years old, with half under the age of 16.

On Friday the Chiefs finally made a move to support their community as the city tries to recover from the tragedy.

The franchise announced it has set up ‘Kansas City Strong’ with the Hunt family and the NFL supporting the cause with an initial $200,000 donation to kickstart the fundraiser.

The fund comes after Taylor Swift, the girlfriend of Chefs tight end Travis Kelce, made a touching donation of $100,000 to the grieving family of the Kansas City radio DJ shot dead.

The popstar, who wasn’t at the rally Wednesday after jetting in to Australia for the next leg of her Eras Tour, made two $50,000 donations to the GoFundMe page set up for Lisa Lopez-Galvan’s family.

‘Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift,’ read the message accompanying the gift.

Lopez-Galvan, 44, was killed when two juvenile gunmen opened fire in the crowd in a ‘personal dispute’ that escalated.

Earlier on Friday the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed the juvenile suspects will be charged as adults.

The two suspects who are yet to be named are currently in custody, as cops in Missouri continue to vet what happened at the stricken Super Bowl celebration.

A third juvenile initially believed to be involved has since been determined to not been connected to the shooting and was released.

Police Chief Stacey Graves said investigators believe the shooting was triggered by a personal dispute between a small group, and the parade was not the target. Graves added that preliminary findings show no connection to terrorism or homegrown extremism.

The 22 people injured ranged between 8 and 47 years old, with half under 16. Children’s Mercy Hospital said it treated 11 children – nine of them had been shot and three remain at the hospital on Thursday. All victims are expected to recover, per officials.

Lopez-Galvan’s brother Beto Lopez went on to reveal Lopez-Galvan’s son, Marc, and her daughter, Adrianna, were both present at the parade, and witnessed their mom’s merciless killing.
