Lyndell Mays, one of two adult men charged with second-degree murder in the death of Lisa Lopez-Galvan at the shooting last week after the Chiefs Super Bowl win parade, appeared in court Wednesday.

Mays appeared before Jackson County Circuit Court Judge R. Travis Willingham for his initial appearance at the downtown Kansas City, Missouri, courthouse. Mays walked into court with a large white piece of gauze taped to the side of his face. He told Willingham that he has hired a private attorney. 

Mays, 23, of Kansas City, Missouri, remains in custody at the Jackson County Detention Center on a $1 million bond. Mays was injured due to the gunfire last week and was among a group of patients transported to the nearby University Health. 

He appeared in a mug shot posted late Tuesday with a bandage covering the right side of his face. He will have a bond review hearing on Feb. 29.
