(London Telegraph) A picture made its way around the world after the Las Vegas shooting, of a man who bravely shielded a woman from bullets with his body as the concert he was at turned into a warzone.

Even as bullets rained from on high, he protected the woman, who lay on the floor in distress.

Many were wondering who the heroic man was – and it appears he has been identified.

Friends of Matthew Cobos, a young man who is in the US Army, have identified him from the picture.
