Victim's mother: 'Saddest day of my life'

LAS VEGAS - One mother called Sunday the "saddest day" of her life.

Debby Allen's son, Christopher Roybal, was killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. Allen said her son was her best friend.

The two were attending the outdoor concert but he had arrived earlier so they were not near each other at the time of the shooting.

"I was trying to run towards where I thought he 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," she said.

Christopher was going to turn 29 in the upcoming weeks. He was a veteran and from California.
