Manager at Springs gym among those killed in Las Vegas shooting”

The victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas included a veteran who managed a gym in Colorado Springs. Twenty-eight year old Christopher Roybal was one of almost 60 people killed Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on a crowd of thousands at the Mandalay Bay.

Christopher Roybal served as an explosive dog handler in Afghanistan.

Roybal was set to celebrate his 29th birthday next week, she said.

Roybal, just 28, was attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival with his mother, who survived the shooting. "He would have never not called me instantly to tell me he was OK", Debby Allen said.

Allen described how she tried to run toward the gunfire to find her son.

A family member of Roybal's told 9NEWS he had moved to Colorado about seven months ago for his job with Crunch Fitness.

Roybal wrote this summer on Facebook about being shot at, a "nightmare" he said no amount of drugs, therapy or talking could help him escape.
