Taylor Swift has sent her condolences and $100,000 to the family of the woman who died during the shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs victory parade on Wednesday. 

Lisa Lopez-Galvan, a local radio DJ, was shot and killed while celebrating the Chiefs' Super Bowl win with her husband of 22 years and their two children.

Following the mass shooting – which left 22 people, including children, injured – the singer made two $50,000 payments eight minutes apart to a GoFundMe page created to help benefit the family of Lopez-Galvan. 

"Sending my deepest sympathies and condolences in the wake of your devastating loss. With love, Taylor Swift," she added in a comment. Her donations were confirmed by a representative. 

The find's initial goal was to raise $75,000, but as of Saturday morning, more than $328,000 has been raised. 

A statement on the page reads: "This fund has been set up to benefit the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan. Lisa was celebrating the Chiefs' Super Bowl Victory parade when senselessly killed. She is survived by two children and her husband of 22 years.
