Witnesses who assisted in tackling the suspect speak up

When shooting broke out on Wednesday night, close to the conclusion of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl celebration, onlookers reacted quickly.

In Kansas City, Missouri, Trey and Casey Filter went to the jam-packed parade and rally along with their kids. Trey Filter reported that as they and a large number of other Chiefs supporters prepared to depart, there was a “commotion” and he saw someone “being chased” as people yelled, “Get him!”

In an interview with ABC News on Thursday’s “Good Morning America,” he recounted, “I jumped and remember thinking, ‘I hope this is the dude they were talking about.”

“When we realized we had him, we were quite happy, and they began screaming, ‘There’s a gun, there’s a gun.'” Thus, we were quite unwavering in

Casey Filter said her “first thought” when she saw a gun on the ground was to “get it away from what was happening.”

“I was just wanting everyone to be safe — that was my main concern,” she told ABC News.

A video posted to social media shows two individuals tackling someone to the ground, pinning them down and repeatedly punching them until two police officers run up and detain them. Alyssa Marsh-Contreras told ABC News that her father, Paul Contreras, was among the bystanders who took down one of the alleged gunman who appeared to be fleeing on foot.

The Filters said the reality of what had happened didn’t start to set in until the three-hour drive back home to Wichita, Kansas,

“It’s a pretty sobering situation,” Trey Filter told ABC News. “It’s been pretty fast-paced for us and I’m sure for the kids as well.”

“They are pretty proud of their dad though,” Casey Filter said. “That is a fact.”
