The "Red Hat Hero" from Albuquerque

Investigators still don't know why a man fired on a country music festival from his high-rise hotel room on Sunday. They believe he killed 59 people, including New Mexican Lisa Romero-Muniz, before taking his own life.

For a while, there was a mystery in Las Vegas about a hero in a red hat. Stories emerged on social media about a man wearing a red baseball cap who came to the aid of so many people during Sunday night's tragedy.

It turns out that hero is Anthony Chavez, a Cibola High School graduate and a former Sandia National Labs employee. He lives in Las Vegas now.
