The shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night has left at least 58 people dead and more than 518 injured, making it the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. Among those killed was Sonny Melton, a registered nurse from Paris, TN.
His wife, an orthopedic surgeon, survived. She described his actions during the gunfire.
"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 kindhearted, loving man he was, but at this point, I can barely breathe."
Sonny was a 2015 BSN graduate of Union University and president of his class.
