Las Vegas Mass Shooting Latest: Who Are The Victims?

A more detailed picture is beginning to emerge from the chaos and devastation of Sunday’s country music concert on the Las Vegas Strip that became the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

With more than 500 people injured and 59 killed, “It’s a long, laborious process to identify the victims and reunite them with the family members,” said Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

And while there are numerous social media reports about the victims, here is what we know about some of those killed from official sources:

Sonny Melton

Melton, a registered nurse at the Henry County Medical Center in Paris, Tenn., was in the lifesaving business, but his employer confirmed he lost his own life. He was at the concert with his wife, Heather, an orthopedic surgeon, who made it out alive.

“He saved my life,” Heather Melton told USA Today. “He grabbed me from behind and started running when I felt him get shot in the back.”
