Chiefs protest as Lyndell Mays’ bond review hearing is postponed

Lyndell Mays, one of the two individuals accused of second-degree murder in connection with the shooting incident that occurred during the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl parade, made an appearance in Jackson County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Mays’ attorney, John Reed, made his first appearance in court alongside his client. Reed successfully requested a postponement of Mays’ bond hearing, which will now take place on Monday, March 11, at 1:30 p.m.

Mays missed a bond-review hearing in Jackson County Circuit Court on Feb. 29 because he was readmitted to the hospital. The hearing was rescheduled for Monday, March 4, but was further postponed to Tuesday when May’s public defender failed to show up, as stated by the court.

Two young individuals were also accused of a weapons offense and resisting arrest.

According to court records, a confrontation ensued between Mays and a group of men following the Chiefs Super Bowl rally. The argument allegedly escalated when they questioned each other’s intentions and exchanged stares. It is stated that Mays was the first to draw his gun, leading others in the vicinity to follow suit.

On February 21, Mays made his initial court appearance before Judge R. Travis Willingham of the Jackson County Circuit Court. During the hearing, Mays informed the judge that he had retained legal representation.

In the previous month, Mays found himself being taken into custody and placed in the Jackson County Adult Detention facility.

Mays and Miller both have a bond set at $1 million.
