A Navy veteran living in Denver was killed during the shooting at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night.
KUSA reports Christopher Roybal was originally from southern California but recently moved to Denver for a job with Crunch Fitness in Colorado Springs. Roybal was in Las Vegas with his mother celebrating his upcoming 29th birthday. She told KUSA the pair became separated during the concert and she was not able to find him.
A statement from Crunch Fitness says Chris was the General Manager at the gym located in North Colorado Springs. Chris had also previously worked at the Laverne and Rancho Cucamonga, CA Crunch fitness locations.
The statement also says Chris was more than team member, he was a son, mentor, friend and a hero. He was known for his big teddy bear smile and infectious laughter.
Roybal, who served in Afghanistan, is one of at least 59 people killed during the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
