Mother of alleged Kansas City shooter launched GoFundMe during ‘tragic time’: Report

The mother of one of the suspected Kansas City Chiefs‘ Super Bowl parade shooters is under fire after purportedly setting up a GoFundMe to help her son get through a “tragic time.”

Lyndell Mays, 23, is charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon following the deadly shooting at the Chiefs’ celebration, and his mother, Teneal Burnside, set up a now-deleted online fundraiser for him as he was in the hospital, according to a report.

“He is in the ICU fighting for a recovery from several surgeries from going to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration with his older sister,” the fundraiser purportedly read.

“Getting shot multiple times at a time that was [meant] to bring so much joy to so many has [brought] pain and sadness to all that was attending.”

At least $100 was raised through the GoFundMe prior to the charges being filed against Mays, the report noted.

That money was reportedly intended to pay for his medical treatment.


Mays allegedly began shooting following a confrontation with 18-year-old Dominic Miller, who is also facing charges.

During an altercation between the two, Mays brandished his gun, which began a shootout that injured over 20 people and purportedly killed 43-year-old Lisa Lopez-Galvan.
