We are all still living with the tragic events of February 14, when a shooting occurred during the Kansas City Chiefs' victory parade. Now, the Kelce brothers have commented on these events.

The shooting occurred during the parade after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers 25-22. As fans celebrated the Kansas City Chiefs' fourth-ever victory, shots rang out near Union Station.

As a result of these events, over 20 people were injured, including eight children, and one person died.

KC, you mean the world to me."
