Felon caught with guns three years before Las Vegas shooting

A man was caught with multiple weapons inside a Mandalay Bay hotel room nearly three years before the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, a case that could have implications for civil litigation against the hotel.

One of the six weapons found inside Kye Aaron Dunbar’s 24th-floor hotel room on Nov. 29, 2014, was a scoped rifle pointing toward the Strip, court documents say. He pleaded guilty in September 2015 to a count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and was sentenced in January 2016 to 40 months in prison with an additional three years of supervised release.
