Looking At the Tragic Shooting In Kansas City – And How Police Officers Worked Quickly To Keep Everyone Safe

Law enforcement veteran Michael Letts discusses what could’ve been done to potentially avoid the shooting, while commending on-duty officers.

What was supposed to be a celebratory event for the Super Bowl-winning Kansas City Chiefs soon evolved into something unimaginable.

A shooting near the end of the victory rally resulted in the death of one person (thus far) and the injury of over 20 others, including several kids. Three people are currently in questioning, though more investigation is expected. “We are working to determine if one of the three are the one that was in (a) video where fans assisted police,” noted Kansas City Police Chief Stacey Graves.

While this is the latest in what seems to be a never-ending list of “active shooter” events, there is one bright spot. Police worked quickly to keep everyone else safe, while ushering those with life-threatening emergencies to nearby hospitals.

Joining us now to discuss this further is Michael Letts, a law enforcement veteran with over 30 years of experience under his belt. Letts is President, Founder and CEO of InVest USA, an organization that provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable groups and sponsorships. His expertise in all things law and order make him an ideal subject for this interview. Welcome, Mr. Letts!
