“Please join me in prayer for all the victims in this heinous act,” Chiefs linebacker Drue Tranquill wrote in a post that was retweeted by quarterback and Super Bowl MVP, Patrick Mahomes.

“Pray that doctors & first responders would have steady hands & that all would experience full healing,” Tranquill added. Rick Burkholder, the Chiefs VP of Sports Medicine and performance, said that he, his wife and head coach Andy Reid’s family were all safe and heading on a bus to Arrowhead.
