Three Men Face Federal Gun Charges in Super Bowl Shooting

Three young men face federal gun charges as part of the investigation into the February shooting that injured 20 and killed one, marring a Super Bowl victory celebration in Kansas City, Mo., the New York Times reports. Federal prosecutors said on Wednesday that the three men – Fedo Antonia Manning, 22; Ronnel Dewayne Williams, Jr., 21; and Chaelyn Hendrick Groves, 19, were faced multiple gun charges after investigators determined that at least two guns had been unlawfully purchased or trafficked. The three men are not charged with the shooting itself; there is no evidence of that, prosecutors said. But they were the men were involved in straw purchases of some of the firearms recovered, meaning that they bought a firearm for someone who was not legally eligible to procure one.


In late February, two Missouri men, Lyndell Mays, 23, and Dominic Miller, 18, were charged with murder; they also were shot during the exchange of gunfire. A few days after the incident, two teenagers were charged with resisting arrest and “gun-related” offenses. Ballistics tests revealed that a bullet from Miller’s gun killed Elizabeth Galvan, 43, a D.J. and radio host known as Lisa, who was at the celebration with her family. Nine children were among those who suffered gunshot wounds.
