Wauwatosa native confirmed dead in Vegas attack
WAUWATOSA, Wi. — The parents of a Minnesota man who had been missing after the mass shooting in Las Vegas say they have been notified he was killed in the attack.
Steven Berger, a financial adviser who lived in Shorewood, Minnesota, and was a native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, had been attending Sunday night’s concert with his roommate and other friends. His mother Mary says Steven’s roommate saw him get shot and fall, but was prevented from getting to him as people were herded out of the venue.
Steven’s father, Richard Berger, said the family was notified by the coroner’s office in Las Vegas Tuesday afternoon that he had died.
Richard Berger calls the loss of the couple’s only son “terrible.”
Mary Berger described her son as fun-loving with a serious side and a hard worker. He played basketball in high school and college, graduating from St. Olaf College. He was the father of three children.
