The shooting on February 14 left one woman dead and 22 people injured – including two girls in the Reyes family.

Kelce's Eighty-Seven and Running foundation made two $50,000 donations to a GoFundMe raising money to support the Reyes family, a Kelce representative confirmed to NBC.

Travis was following in the famous footsteps of Swift, who on Friday donated $100,000 to support the family of the woman killed in the shooting, Elizabeth Lopez-Galvan.

"Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift," read a message next to a $50,000 donation to the cause. A second donation in the same amount was deposited minutes later.

Police said that the shooting on Wednesday was the result of a "dispute" and that two juveniles were among those detained.

Up to a million jubilant fans had gathered for the parade of NFL champions Wednesday afternoon when shots rang out.

Swift is dating Kelce, the Chiefs' tight end, and was a regular presence at games throughout the season, including the championship clash on Sunday.
