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.”

The Kansas City Chiefs released a statement confirming the team’s players and their families are safe.
