During a press conference late Wednesday, Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves said that there was one deceased and 22 wounded. 

It is unclear if the deceased is Lopez-Galvan or another victim. Graves said authorities are still working on the total number of victims.

An active investigation was underway and the scene had been “cleared” and made safe while authorities continue to collect evidence and conduct interviews, Graves said.

At the time of the press conference, Graves said three people had been “detained and [are] under investigation for today’s incident.”

“Right now we do not have a motive,” she added.

The Chief said the shooting began on the west side of the city’s Union Station immediately after a rally honoring the Chiefs, who won the Super Bowl on Sunday.

According to a PEOPLE reporter on the ground at the parade, loud pops rang out as soon as the confetti began falling as the players left the stage. Witnesses at the scene said they saw multiple people bleeding, although it was not clear what the source of their injuries was.

A woman who attended the parade with a group of friends told PEOPLE, “I saw two people bleeding on the ground and we got out of there as fast as we could run.”

Another woman, who attended the parade with her husband and daughter, said, “We heard the shots and I grabbed my daughter’s hand and ran with the group. When people start running like that, I knew it was something.”
