A Kansas City man died after launching fireworks in celebration of the Chiefs Super Bowl victory.
Police say the man tried to light commercial-grade fireworks inside a mortar shell when one of them exploded.
It happened shortly after the Chiefs defeated San Francisco 31-20.
Police say officers also will be following up on 163 reports of celebratory gunfire from 5:30 p.m. Sunday to early Monday.
I never understood the rationale for rioting, firing gunshots into the air, and lighting fireworks simply because “your team” won a championship. Celebrate, cheer, and scream a bit, but dude, get a grip; you aren’t actually on the team.
Oh, and for those Never Trumpers out there, the article does not mention whether this incident occurred in Kansas City, Missouri, or Kansas City, Kansas.
