'Just pulled a gun out and started shooting': Kansas City parade 'murderer' ... trends now

A detective is claiming alleged Kansas City parade gunman Lyndell Mays' confessed to opening fire at the Chiefs Super Bowl celebration last week, as it's been revealed the suspect has a prior gun conviction.

Mays, aged 23, and Dominic Miller, aged 18, are facing charges including murder in the second degree, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

These two individuals are not the two juveniles that had been charged with gun-related offenses and resisting arrest last week. 

Court documents have now revealed that Mays has brazenly confessed to the shooting, which left one woman dead, and admitted to the senselessness of his actions. 

Detective Grant Spiking claims that Mays told him: 'Stupid, man. Just pulled a gun out and started shooting. I shouldn't have done that. Just being stupid.'

Spiking wrote that it all began when four men approached Mays and asked the 23-year-old what he was looking at.

'They began arguing about why they were staring at each other,' Spiking continued, according to NBC News 

Prosecutors allege that Mays pulled his gun first during an argument which resulted in others pulling firearms including Miller. 

At a press conference on Tuesday, prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said Miller is believed to have fired the shot that killed local DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan. 

Spiking added that a Glock 9mm handgun reported stolen from a Kansas City location was found near Mays. 

Despite Mays' sister saying her brother was not a monster and just protecting her, Mays has a prior conviction for trying to end a fight with a gun.

He was arrested on April 21, 2021 for pulling out a handgun during an argument while playing basketball, KSHB reported.

On February 8, 2022, he was found guilty and sentenced to five days of shock probation in addition to time served by a county judge, as well as a fine, 90-day suspended sentence and was placed on two years of unsupervised probation.

Mays' mother has set up a GoFundMe for him.

Teneal Burnside set up the cash appeal for her alleged killer son Lyndell Mays, 23, complete with a photo of him seriously-ill in his hospital bed. 

He was among those shot at the celebration on February 14 - and was blasted nine times. Prosecutors now say Mays was one of the two men to blame for the horrific bloodbath, although his unnamed sister insists he was just trying to protect her. 

Pleading for cash, Burnside said Mays was going through a 'tragic time', adding: 'He is in ICU fighting for a recovery from several surgeries, from going to the Chiefs' Super Bowl celebration parade with his older sister.

'Getting shot multiple times at a time that was ment (sic) to bring so much joy to many has bought (sic) pain and sadness to all that was attending.' 

The sibling, who asked to remain anonymous, said: ‘For them to make my brother out to be a monster, it really hurts me inside because he was only trying to protect us.

‘He doesn’t deserve to be thrown in it like that. My brother is tall and broad, he’s hefty. They were young kids and little guys, trying to prove a point.

‘They had been looking at him, and they approached us, they walked closer they had been staring at him. We can see that they have guns in their pockets.
