Victim of Las Vegas shooting was celebrating anniversary
NEW YORK - A Tennessee man was one of the 58 killed in a mass shooting at the Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, family confirmed to TV station WZTV.
Sonny Melton, of Big Sandy, Tennessee, was killed when a gunman opened fire Sunday night on the crowd of 22,000.
Melton's wife, Heather Gulish Melton, said she is in complete disbelief.
"At this point, I'm in complete disbelief and despair. I don't know what to say. Sonny was the most kind-hearted, loving man I have ever met. He saved my life and lost his," Heather said in a statement to Fox 17 News.
A coworker said the Meltons were in Las Vegas celebrating their first wedding anniversary.
