October 1’s Vegas Massacre was more foreseeable than MGM would like us to believe…
Less than three years prior to the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting, Mandalay Bay guest Kye Aaron Dunbar’s 24th-floor hotel room was found by a housekeeper to contain six weapons, including a scoped rifle aimed towards the Strip. Dunbar later pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced to 40 months in prison. (Dunbar denied having any murderous intent and claimed he was planning to use the weapons for target-shooting later.)
“One the arguments that MGM Resorts (which owns Mandalay Bay) relies on when defending against personal injury claims for victims of October 1st’s Vegas Massacre is that the events of that night were not foreseeable,” commented Las Vegas personal injury attorney Michael Becker. “But the actions of Mr. Dunbar — training a rifle towards a populated area from a high-floor Mandalay Bay hotel room — severely undercuts that logic because they are nearly identical to the One October shooter’s. After Dunbar, the Vegas Massacre was arguably highly foreseeable.”
