Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock targeted aviation fuel tanks during shooting spree, report says

Stephen Paddock, the gunman who killed 58 people and injured more than 500 during Sunday’s massacre on the Las Vegas Strip, reportedly also took aim at nearby aviation fuel tanks during the rampage.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing an unnamed source, reported late Wednesday that two holes were found in one of the two jet fuel tanks near the site of the Route 91 Harvest concert. One of the bullets penetrated a tank, but did not cause an explosion, the report said.

The report said FBI agents inspected the tanks and considered the bullet’s trajectory from where Paddock opened fire on 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

    Hold on a second… he had a scope, and a gun capable of firing hundreds of rounds a minute yet he oesecribe nly managed to hit the fuel tanks with two bullets? Does this really seem like the fuel tanks were targeted? There must be a phrase to describe fanciful, desperate, hypothetical information like this but it escapes me at the moment.

    only two rounds? two rounds that supposedly prove trajectory back to his sniper nest. the only way to kill all the rumors and conspiracy theories is to fully answer questions about check in times , check in data disappearing CCTV coverage missing or with held . is there any attempt to contact security guard that ushered out distraught asian woman warning of up coming massacre? if she did not exist why are there at least three witnesses?

    The MOST killed in USA history is RUBBISH; it is true ONLY IF YOU IGNORE HOW MANY THE GOVERNMENT KILLED; one example:

    On February 28, 1993 a team of agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) launched an assault on the premises of a religious community called Mount Carmel, outside Waco, Texas,

    Eighty men, women and yes even children died at the hands of two out of control government agencies

      The lousy feds will never own up to that catastrophy. Same with the yellow slanty-eyed fuck at Ruby Ridge.
      Nothing to see here. Move along.
