The gunfire happened inside Union Station shortly after 3:30pm, and Kansas City police chief Stacey Graves later said that three suspects had been detained.

‘I am heartbroken over the tragedy that took place today,’ Kelce said.

‘My heart is with all who came out to celebrate with us and have been affected. KC, you mean the world to me.’

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas confirmed during a press conference that all Chiefs players and staff are safe and accounted for following the shooting.

The Chiefs’ Vice President of Content and Production Robert G. Alberino Jr also confirmed that the organization’s production crew, game day crew cheer team, flag team and mascots were all accounted for.

The shooting happened seconds after the team – including Kelce and Patrick Mahomes – left the stage.

Chiefs linebacker Drue Tranquill also urged fans to join him in prayer in a message shared to social media.

Please join me in prayer for all the victims in this heinous act,’ the Chiefs player posted.

‘Pray that doctors & first responders would have steady hands & that all would experience full healing.’

Team buses left the scene around half an hour after the incident to return to Arrowhead Stadium.
