A 28-year-old Navy veteran and gym manager from Colorado was among the 59 people killed when a gunman opened fire on concertgoers in Las Vegas Sunday night.

Christopher Roybal's death was confirmed Tuesday by an employee of Crunch Fitness on North Academy Boulevard, where Roybal worked.

Roybal was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival with his mother, Debby Allen, who survived the shooting. Allen said it was the "saddest day" of her life.

"I was trying to run towards where I thought he (Christopher) might be, but a man wouldn't let me. He pulled me away and said, 'You can't run towards the gunfire.' I knew it. He would have never not called me instantly to tell me he was OK," Debby Allen told CBS Las Vegas.
