Man faces murder charge in Las Vegas casino fight after 73-year-old man dies

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A man accused of punching another man in a casino fight and causing his death is now facing a murder charge, according to Las Vegas court records.

Michael Shane Saunders was initially charged with battery for the Aug. 27 fight in the lobby of the STRAT Hotel but the charge was upgraded to murder after the victim, 73-year-old Thach Nguyen, who suffered a brain bleed and fractured skull, died.

According to the arrest report, Saunders told police his fiancee was standing in line for the hotel check-in when he heard her say "stop touching me" and "get away from me" to Nguyen who was standing behind her.

Record number of guns found in carry-on luggage in 2021; 68 found in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Airport security officials have found 68 firearms in carry-on luggage at McCarran International Airport so far this year.

It's a growing problem at airports, and follows statistics released in January that showed 72 firearms discovered in carry-on luggage at McCarran for all of 2020.

While that's a lot of guns, this year's count doesn't even place Las Vegas in the Top 10 nationwide, according to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

“The number of firearms that our TSA officers are stopping at airport checkpoints is alarming,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. “Firearms, particularly loaded firearms, introduce an unnecessary risk at checkpoints, have no place in the passenger cabin of an airplane, and represent a very costly mistake for the passengers who attempt to board a flight with them.”

A national report from the TSA shows 4,495 guns have been discovered as of Oct. 3... Read More
