Eric Silva: He had just turned 21

LAS VEGAS - Erick Silva, 21, was among the victims of Sunday's shootings, his stepsister Daisy Hernandez said. His family is holding a vigil for him tonight in Las Vegas, where he lived. She said that he had recently started working in security because he loved helping people.

"All I can tell you is that he was a great son, brother, uncle who was loved by so many people," Hernandez said. "He had just turned 21 this August and I'm pretty sure he died trying to protect people at that concert."
