Flags be flown at half-staff in honor of KC shooting victim

TOPEKA — On Tuesday, Governor Laura Kelly directed flags to be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset on Saturday, Feb. 24, in honor of Elizabeth “Lisa” Lopez-Galvan, a Kansan who died in the shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl Parade and Rally, and the 22 other victims injured on Wednesday, Feb. 14. 

“This senseless violence turned a day that should have been filled with joyous celebration into a tragedy,” said Governor Laura Kelly. “Kansans and the entire Kansas City community are mourning the loss of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a DJ and mother of two from Shawnee. I’m grieving for her family and for all the victims and their loved ones.”
