Las Vegas shooting victim: Erick Silva, Las Vegas

Updated October 5, 2017 - 1:04 am

Las Vegas resident Erick Silva, is among those killed in the attack on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

Silva, 21, was stationed in front of the stage at the festival Sunday as part of the show’s security detail, Gina Argento, office manager for the Las Vegas branch of Contemporary Services Corporation security, told the Review-Journal Tuesday.

And when the shooting started, he was among the first of the event’s first responders, helping concertgoers to flee until he, himself, was killed, Argento said.

Silva worked security for the Las Vegas branch of CSC for about three years, Argento said.

“He was trying to help people get out,” she said. “He was in front of the stage. He was in front of everything.”
