KENOSHA victim Anthony Huber "pushed his girlfriend out of the way and helped others" before he was shot.
"He pushed me out of the way, like he was telling me to run off, and I tried to grab him," Hannah Gittings told CNN on Friday.
"I should have been there, but there was going to be no changing his mind."
Huber, 26, was identified as one of the men who was shot and killed after a gunman opened fire onto a crowd of protesters demonstrating against Jacob Blake's death.
The suspect was identified as 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse killed one other person and injured another after spraying bullets at demonstrators, according to authorities.
"He did not deserve to die," Gittings told CNN. "This kid just snatched any chance for him to have been able to live the life that he deserved to live."
There is a GoFundMe page to help Huber's partner Hannah Gittings. It's titled "Help Hannah" to raise money for Huber's funeral costs and other expenses incurred by his loss.
"On Tuesday 8/26 Anthony decided to use his voice and stand up for a cause that meant something. While peacefully protesting Anthony selflessly tried to Aid in taking down an attacker when he was gunned down," the page description writes.
"Anthony leaves behind a significant other and a step daughter who need our help. They are in need of money very fast. she can’t retrieve her house or car keys from his body or see him until they find a funeral home and pay for it. Please help if you can. Anthony was a hero."
