Twenty-nine-year-old Sonny Melton of Big Sandy, Tenn., died shielding his wife, Heather, from the spray of bullets. According to a Nashville news station, the couple was attending the music festival in Las Vegas to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. They just finished building a lakeside home.

MCEVERS: Heather told the Nashville station, he saved my life. He grabbed me from behind and started running when I felt him get shot in the back. At this point, 58 victims have died, and more than 500 were injured. Of the injured, 50 are reportedly in critical condition. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
