Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his wife Brittany Mahomes visited two little sisters who are being treated at a hospital after being shot during the Chiefs' Super Bowl parade earlier this week.

The Reyes family shared that the sisters, eight and 10 years old, were shot in the legs while attending the parade and rally on Wednesday, ABC News reported.

The shooting, which authorities said looked to be the result of a personal dispute, left one person dead and 22 others injured.

The sisters had surgery, and they will spend several months in casts.

According to a statement from their family, they have begun physical therapy and are "making good progress".

The family thanked the Children’s Mercy Hospital staff as well as the famous Mahomes couple and shared photos of their hospital visit.

"We are incredibly grateful for the love, support, and prayers during this difficult time," the family said. "While we are relieved by their progress, the emotional healing continues for all of us."

At least half of the victims from Wednesday's shooting are under the age of 16, according to police.

Two teenagers were charged with resisting arrest and "gun-related" offences on Friday in connection to the shooting at the parade.
