Vegas Shooter Also Targeted Aviation Fuel Tanks

According to a new report, the 25,000 concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival were not the only targets of Stephen Paddock on Sunday night. From his perch in his hotel room on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel and casino, Paddock fired rounds at two massive jet fuel tanks located about 2,000 feet from his location.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday night that a “knowledgeable source” had revealed that large, cylindrical aviation fuel tanks were targeted by Paddock:

“The bullets left two holes in one of two circular white tanks. One of the bullets penetrated the tank, but did not cause a fire or explosion near the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, another knowledgeable source said late Wednesday.

The tanks are roughly 1,100 feet from the concert site, where Paddock killed 58 people and wounded almost 500.”
