LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Friends and colleagues of the person shot and killed in a nightclub shooting on the Las Vegas Strip plan to hold a benefit comedy show in his honor.

The show in honor of Kenneth "KD" Brown is scheduled for Saturday at 10 p.m. at Joker's at 1631 N. Decatur Blvd. Organizers of the show said all proceeds and donations will go to help pay for Brown's funeral cost.

Police called Brown, who worked as a club promoter and stand-up comedian, a "hero" when he tried to subdue a gunman early Monday morning at the entrance of Drai's nightclub.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, Brown, 40, got a hold of an armed Benjamin Frazier, who confronted club management and security officers over a dispute of his $30 cover charge.

Police said Brown was shot twice before he and Frazier fell to the ground. Brown later died at University Medical Center.

Police also said Frazier shot a club manager in the arm and a security officer in the stomach. Both of those victims were expected to survive.

"He is and he was my hero because he gave his life to save someone else," Brown's mother, Norma Sattiewhite, said a day after the shooting. "I believe he saved many lives."

A hearing for Frazier was scheduled for Oct. 30. He was booked on charges of murder and attempted murder.
