Navy veteran Tony Janssens told how he ran into some of the suspects while fleeing to safety after gunshots were heard at Wednesday's event.

One of the suspects in the Kansas City Chiefs parade shooting was missing part of his jaw when he tried to flee from police after being shot, according to a witness.

Navy veteran Tony Janssens told Fox News Digital how he ran into some of the suspects while fleeing to safety after gunshots were heard at Wednesday’s event.

‘(One of the suspects) turns around and they shoot him in the jaw. He’s basically missing his jaw and he’s crazy,” Janssen said.

‘He doesn `t know what to do. He doesn `t know what to do. And then his friends fight. They all say, they don’t know if they should keep running or help his friend, since he is bleeding now.

Janssens wasn’t sure if the suspect was a victim or one of the shooters, but he followed his military training and kept his eyes on the wounded man.

‘I saw him hand a bag to the other two people he was with. And I see them running, trying to take off and escape. And they’re running towards these two semi-trucks and they get between these two semi-trucks,” she said.

That’s when the veteran led police toward the group and the men began running, followed by Janssens and the officer.

Four other good Samaritans heard Janssens and tackled the suspect, but another suspect escaped.

Two unnamed juveniles have been charged with crimes related to the mass shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl rally, authorities said Friday, as the city tries to recover in the wake of the violence.

A Jackson County Family Court news release said the juveniles were charged Thursday and are being held at the county’s Juvenile Detention Center “on charges related to weapons and resisting arrest.”

The murdered woman was identified by radio station KKFI-FM as Lisa López-Galván, host of 'Taste of Tejano.'

The statement says “it is anticipated that additional charges are expected in the future as the investigation by the Kansas City Police Department continues.”

Juvenile court cases are largely kept private under Missouri law and hearings are not open to the public.

Suspects may be charged as adults if charged with a serious crime.

Police initially detained three juveniles, but released one who they determined was not involved in the shooting. Police are looking for others who may have been involved and are calling for witnesses, victims and people with videos of the violence on their cellphones to call a dedicated hotline.

Police Chief Stacey Graves said Friday: “Our investigators have thrown themselves into this investigation and it continues.” We will not give in until all those who participated in these crimes are arrested so that they can be punished to the fullest extent of the law.’

The shooting outside Union Station occurred despite the presence of more than 800 police officers who were in and around the building, including atop nearby structures, Mayor Quinton Lucas said.

The murdered woman was identified by radio station KKFI-FM as Lisa López-Galván, host of ‘Taste of Tejano.’

López Galván, whose DJ name was ‘Lisa G,’ was an outgoing and devoted mother from a prominent Latino family in the area, said Rosa Izurieta and Martha Ramírez, two childhood friends who worked with her at a staffing company.

Taylor Swift, who is dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, donated $100,000 to López-Galván’s family through GoFundMe campaigns.

Kansas City has long struggled with gun violence and in 2020 was among nine cities targeted by the U.S. Department of Justice in an effort to combat violent crime. In 2023, the city tied a record with 182 homicides, most of which involved firearms.

Police Chief Stacey Graves said investigators believe the shooting was sparked by a personal dispute between a small group and that the parade was not the target. Graves added that preliminary findings do not show any connection to terrorism or local extremism.
