A registered nurse from Tennessee and a 23-year-old mechanic are the victims to be identified after 58 were killed in a mass shooting at a music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night.

Sonny Melton, 29, was with his wife Heather, watching Jason Aldean perform at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas Village, just after 10pm when gunfire ran out.

Heather says that her selfless husband saved her life.

‘He saved my life. He grabbed me and started running when I felt him get shot in the back,’ she told WSMV.
‘I want everyone to know what a kind-hearted, loving man he was, but at this point, I can barely breathe.’

The couple lived in Big Sandy, Tennessee, where Melton worked as a registered nurse in an emergency room and ICU at Henry County Medical Center. His wife, who is a surgeon, also works at the hospital and he aided her in the operating room.

Another victim was identified through a Facebook user who said she watched him die in her arms.
Jordan McIldoon, 23, of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, was attending the festival with his girlfriend, his parents told CBC.

Heather Gooze of Spring Valley, Nevada spread word of his death on Facebook.

‘Friends and family, I am OK. I am right outside of the festival grounds. We are not allowed to go anywhere,’ Gooze wrote Monday morning. ‘I am with a young man who died in my arms! RIP Jordan McIldoon from British Columbia. I can’t believe this just happened!!!’

McIldoon’s parents said he was a heavy-duty mechanic’s apprentice and was soon to attend trade school.

Melton and McIldoon were among 58 people who were killed at the festival, when 64-year-old Stephen Craig Paddock of nearby Mesquite, Nevada opened fire from his hotel room across the street at the Mandalay Bay Casino. Another 515 people were injured in what is now the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
