Police have begun releasing the names of some of the victims of the October 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas that killed more than 58 people and injured over 500.

Sgt. 1st Class Charleston Hartfield, 34, was serving in the Nevada Army National Guard and was a Las Vegas Metro police officer when he was killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, according to the National Guard.

A friend of Hartfield's, Troy Rhett, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he attempted contacting Hartfield after hearing the news Sunday and didn't get a response. I kept getting the question, were you good friends with Charles? They say it's always the good ones we lose early.

Brig. Gen. William Burks, the Adjutant General of the Nevada National Guard, said losing any member of the Guard family is hard, especially in such an unexpected manner.

"Faith and family were the most important to Charlie", one officer said as he recalled his conversations with Officer Hartfield.

Brig. Gen. William Burks, the Adjutant General of the Nevada National Guard, said losing any member of the Guard family is hard, especially in such an unexpected manner: "Charleston Hartfield lived to serve the public and protect his family, he is the epitome of a citizen-soldier". "He is the epitome of a citizen-soldier".

Hartfield published his first book this past July, called "Memoirs Of A Public Servant", detailing his 16-years of service in the military and 11-years in law enforcement. During the escort, some other local officers stood on the sidewalk, a few wiping away tears and then raising their hands in a salute, the newspaper reported.

Uniformed officers took turns at the microphone in Police Memorial Park to share stories to remember Hartfield.
