LAS VEGAS (AP) — The mother of a man shot and killed at an after-hours Las Vegas Strip nightclub says she thinks her son died a hero.
Norma Sattiewhite also says that despite the pain of losing her son, 40-year-old Kenneth Dion Brown, she'll offer forgiveness for his killer.
Sattiewhite told media outlets her son was a club promoter and stand-up comedian who used the stage name KD Brown.
Sattiewhite hasn't responded to messages from The Associated Press.
Police say Brown was fatally wounded when he tackled 41-year-old Benjamin Frazier, who shot two employees at Drai's After Hours a little after 5:30 a.m. Monday. Authorities say he was headed onto the casino floor at Bally's with a .38-caliber revolver.
Frazier is hospitalized, but is expected to face murder, attempted murder and other charges.
