Taylor Swift donates $100k to family of mother who was killed in Chiefs Super Bowl parade

Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed in a tragic shooting this week

Taylor Swift has donated $100,000 to the family of a mom who was killed in a Kansas City Chiefs parade this week.

Mom-of-two and radio DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan was shot during a parade for the Super Bowl on Wednesday (February 14), celebrating the victory of the Kansas City Chiefs.

A further 21 people were injured in the incident, including nine children.

Following the tragic events, Swift - whose boyfriend is Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce - donated $100,000 to a fundraiser set up for Lisa's family.

Taylor donated two $50,000 instalments to the GoFundMe, writing: “Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift.”

Swift's reps confirmed to Variety the donation was from the 'Anti-Hero' singer.

The fundraiser had a target of $75,000, but has since surpassed that and raised over $190,000.

“Lisa was celebrating the Chiefs Super Bowl Victory parade when senselessly killed. She is survived by two children and her husband of 22 years,” the page reads.

“She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend to so many. We ask that you continue to keep her family in your prayers as we grieve the loss of her life.

"This fund will help provide vital financial support to her family as they process this unthinkable tragedy. Any amount is appreciated."

Lisa Lopez-Galvan was killed in the shooting.

Lisa Lopez, a long time friend of Lisa who is not a relative, told the Kansas City Star: “She was the most wonderful, beautiful person.

“She was a local DJ. She did everybody’s weddings. We all know her. She was so full of life.”

She added: “She has a beautiful family. She was such a happy person."

Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas told a news conference: "I'm heartbroken and I'm incredibly upset and disappointed.

"I was there with my wife and my mother, I never would have thought thousands of people would be forced to run for their safety today.

"We went out today looking for a celebration and that was marred. We are praying for the safety of everyone."

Three people were taken into police custody following the incident.

Two juveniles are still detained, while the third person is no longer being held. No charges have been filed.

Meanwhile, a statement from the Chiefs said: "Truly saddened by the senseless act of violence that occurred outside of Union Station at the conclusion of today's parade and rally.

"Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and all of Kansas City."

Our thoughts are with Lisa's family and loved ones. You can donate to the fundraiser here.
