Riverside County victims of Las Vegas mass shooting saluted by supervisors
By Imran Ghori
Riverside County supervisors on Tuesday morning, Oct. 3, remembered three Riverside residents who were among the 59 victims killed in Sunday’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Board Chairman John Tavaglione offered brief biographies of the victims, noting that they still only had limited information.
Angie Gomez was a 2015 graduate of Poly High School in Riverside, where she was a cheerleader. Tavaglione said she was the friend of a staff member’s daughter.
Thomas Allen Day, Jr., 54, worked with his father Thomas Day, Sr. at their Corona companies Tom Day Construction Co. and Portrait Construction, Tavaglione said.
“Tom, just like his dad, was full of life,” Tavaglione said.
Chris Roybal was a military veteran who had served in Afghanistan “only to come back and get shot by a coward from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay,” he said.
