Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker responded to social media requests on Tuesday to help the family of Super Bowl parade shooting victim Lisa Lopez-Galvan.

Lopez-Galvan was wearing a Butker jersey at the Super Bowl celebration when she was shot and killed in a shooting rampage that left more than a dozen others wounded. Her family was seeking a Butker jersey so that she could be laid to rest with it.

Butker agreed to help and called for the shooters to be brought to justice.

“My wife Isabelle and I are heartbroken by the murder of Lisa due to degenerate violence,” the kicker said in a statement. “Murder is a sin that cries out to God for vengeance and I pray the men involved in this tragedy will be brought to justice.

“Hearing that she was a fan of my outspokenness for our shared Catholic Faith makes this even more personal. I am honored to provide a jersey to the family for her to wear. While the family is mourning their loss and grappling with their numerous injuries, I will continue to pray for their healing and the repose of Lisa’s soul.”

Earlier Tuesday, two adults, Dominic M. Miller, 18, of Kansas City, and 22-year-old Lyndell Mays, of Raytown, were charged with second-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action and the unlawful purpose of a weapon. They are each being held on $1 million bail.

“We seek to hold every shooter accountable for their actions on that day. Every single one,” Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker told reporters at a news briefing.

More people are likely to be charged, Baker said.

Prosecutors believe Mays was in a verbal argument with another person that he had no connection with. The argument quickly escalated and Mays drew a handgun, Baker said.

“Mays pulled his handgun first,” she said.

Miller then drew his handgun, authorities said. He is believed to have shot Lopez-Galvan, a local radio disc jockey and mother of two children, who died from her injuries.
