Taylor Swift donates $100,000 to family of Kansas City DJ killed at Chiefs' parade shooting

Taylor Swift has contributed $100,000 to the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a Kansas City radio DJ who was slain earlier this week in a mass shooting at the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory parade. The starlet, whose boyfriend is Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, made two $50,000 gifts to a GoFundMe campaign created to offer “vital financial support” to the family of KKFI DJ Lisa “G.” Swift’s spokesman verified the payments to NBC News, explaining that the crowdfunding platform only takes up to $50,000, so she gave twice.

“Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss,” the singer said on the website. The 43-year-old mother of two went to the parade with her husband and their adult son, a die-hard Kansas City sports fan who was also shot.

According to her niece Michaela Lopez, the Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan Memorial page was created on Thursday afternoon with the intention of raising $75,000. More than 2,000 individuals have given to the charity, which has raised over $218,000 as of Friday morning.

“[Lisa Lopez-Galvan] was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to so many,” a message on the GoFundMe page said. “We ask that you continue to pray for her family as we lament her death. This fund will give critical financial support to her family as they deal with this unexpected catastrophe. Any amount is appreciated.”

Swift’s donations appeared to have been made overnight, as the “Cruel Summer” singer began the Australian leg of her Eras Tour in Melbourne. Lopez-Galvan, whose DJ name was “Lisa G,” started co-hosting “Taste of Tejano” in March 2022, spinning songs on Tuesdays from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., according to her bio on the station’s website. Lopez-Galvan described music as “life and a source of happiness” in her profile. She performed as a DJ at weddings, quinceañeras, and an American Legion bar and grill, blending Tejano, Mexican, and Spanish music with R&B and hip hop.

According to officials, at least 22 individuals were shot on Wednesday, including 11 youngsters aged 6 to 15. The incident occurred at the end of the Chiefs’ celebration to celebrate the team’s Super Bowl victory. Thousands of fans had gathered downtown when gunfire went out, sending scared paradegoers running for shelter at yet another high-profile public event in the United States rocked by gun violence.

Police stated Thursday that they had apprehended three minors but released one who they found was not engaged in the shooting, leaving only two in jail. Police Chief Stacey Graves stated on Wednesday that many weapons had been found and that detectives were investigating to determine whether other persons were involved.

Police did not provide more information about those detained or the guns confiscated. Investigators requested witnesses, anyone with smartphone footage, and victims of the violence to contact a special hotline.

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker stated on social media that she will utilize every instrument available to obtain answers. “We will get through this together,” she stated. “We’ll heal together. “And we’ll fight together.”
