    How the Las Vegas shooting unfolded

Quinton Robbins, a 20-year-old victim of the Las Vegas shooter, was an avid fisherman and snowboarder who spent his final moments with his sister, according to social media posts.

Robbins, of Henderson, Nev., was one of those killed in Sunday night’s mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Family members paid tribute to the young man on Facebook on Monday and established a GoFundMe account to help pay for his funeral expenses.

“He was the most kind and loving soul,” his aunt, Kilee Wells Sanders, wrote on Facebook. “Everyone who met him loved him … He was truly an amazing person.”

Robbins studied at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and worked in recreation for the city of Henderson. City officials said Monday they could not comment on his death.

His Facebook account and those of his friends are full of pictures of him fishing and snowboarding.

His sister, Skylar Robbins, wrote a touching tribute on Twitter, citing the times they snowboarded and rode off-road vehicles together. She also described his final moments after the shooting.

“Everything you said made me laugh no matter how stupid it was,” she wrote. “Laying next to you in the hospital bed all night was the hardest thing I’ve gone through, but you made me feel so at peace and I know you are with me.”

Other family members also shared memories.

“Early this morning I lost one of my only two nephews to some evil in this world,” his uncle, Mike Wells of Gilbert, Ariz., said on Facebook Monday. “This kid was seriously the perfect kid! Had no enemies and treated my kids, his cousins, better than anyone.”

As of Monday evening, the GoFundMe account had raised $6,100 toward a goal of $15,000.
