At least 58 people were killed and 515 injured when a 64-year-old gunman opened fire on a country music festival before killing himself.

Mike found out about his son's injuries when he got home Monday night from a prayer vigil for Sonny and Heather Melton, a husband and wife from Benton County who also were at the concert when the gunfire erupted. "Sonny was the most kind-hearted, loving man I have ever met", Melton said. "I don't know what to say".

His aunt, Kilee Wells Sanders, confirmed his death in a Facebook post: "He was the most kind and loving soul". Sonny Heather spoke with the radio station WZTV, describing her husband's heroic actions.

"Later in the evening, I just kept seeing statuses (on Facebook), people posting that there was still an active shooter at Mandalay", Reitz said. His contagious laugh and smile.He was truly an unbelievable person.

Quinton Robbins, 20, was a resident of Henderson, Nevada, who was killed by gunman Stephen Haddock at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

While police secured the area, busloads of people were transported to the Thomas & Mack Center at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, campus, where the Las Vegas Review Journal reported they were patted down before entering. "Thinking of you all!" wrote another.

Casey taught at the school for the past nine years. "If you are struggling to understand this event or other types of losses, HCMC has staff available at Lake Haven Behavioral Center".

Michael Matthews, superintendent of Schools at the Manhattan Beach Unified School District, said several other members of the school community were at the concert, including a principal and school psychologists. "We thank God every day for this relationship and the support and love of our families".

Jordan McIldoon, 23, of Maple Ridge in British Columbia, Canada, was attending the festival with his girlfriend, his parents told CBC.

"We only had one child", they said. "We just don't know what to do".

Parker was also from Manhattan Beach.

Rachel Parker was a police records technician in California's Manhattan Beach Police Department, who had held her position for a decade.

They include two off-duty police department employees, a former cheerleader, a registered nurse, and a mechanic who traveled to the concert from Canada.

"He's always real personable, upbeat, a real friendly guy", Higbee said.
