Mystery Man Seen Shielding Woman From Gunfire Identified

The hero who was photographed during Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas as he shielded a woman from the gunfire with his own body has been identified. The mystery man is Matthew Cobos. He actually covered the woman's eyes so she couldn't see the carnage around them. Cobos is a cavalry scout with the U.S. Army based in Hawaii and was in California visiting family before he headed to the festival. The image of him shielding the unnamed woman went viral and some have called it "iconic".
