Amidst the aftermath of the fatal shooting incident that marred the Super Bowl parade celebrations, NFL star Travis Kelce, aged 34, was sighted making an appearance at the Granfalloon Restaurant and Bar located in Country Club Plaza on Wednesday, February 14.

Exclusive images obtained by TMZ captured Kelce, dressed in a red tracksuit and sporting a backward baseball cap, engaging with the local ambiance as he posed for a selfie with two uniformed police officers. The day had started on a jubilant note with Kelce and his fellow Kansas City Chiefs reveling in their Super Bowl LVIII victory during the hometown parade held at Union Station.

However, the festivities turned somber when gunfire erupted towards the conclusion of the event. Tragically, the shooting claimed the life of one attendee, identified as local DJ Lisa Lopez-Galvan, and left over 20 individuals wounded.

Following the chaotic turn of events, reassurance came from the Chiefs organization, confirming the safety and well-being of all players and staff members present. Additionally, the governors of Kansas and Missouri, alongside the mayor of Kansas City, were reported safe.

Expressing solidarity and empathy, Travis Kelce and his teammates extended condolences to the victims and their families. In a statement shared via social media, Kelce conveyed his profound grief over the incident, emphasizing his deep bond with the Kansas City community.

As the city grapples with the aftermath, efforts to aid the injured, particularly children, are underway. Notably, 12 victims, including 11 minors between ages 6 and 15, were swiftly transported to Children’s Mercy Kansas City for treatment, with positive prognoses for their recovery.

Meanwhile, the NFL fraternity, including Kelce's teammate Marquez Valdes-Scantling, has rallied support for the affected families, exemplifying a spirit of unity and compassion in the face of adversity.
