Las Vegas shooter fired 'incendiary' rounds at fuel tank

Recommended Posts

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock fired special "incendiary" bullets at a 43,000-barrel fuel tank in what investigators believe was an attempt to cause an explosion, two law enforcement sources told CNN.

Those types of rounds, meant to ignite what they hit, were found inside Paddock's room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and near the fuel tank a short distance away on the grounds of McCarran International Airport, the sources said.

Authorities have previously disclosed that Paddock fired at the tank and struck it with two rifle rounds, when he opened fire on the crowd below from his 32nd floor hotel room on October 1. They had not disclosed that he used incendiary rounds to fire at the tank, which contains jet fuel.

The sources, briefed on the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, said the incendiary rounds were recovered in an area near the tank.

It is unclear if the rounds that struck the tank were also of the incendiary variety. Chris Jones, an airport spokesman, said he was unaware of any rounds being recovered other than those that struck the tank.

so the air traffic controllers were correct when they told the pilots there was a shooter at the airport. I just wondered why they continued to land the planes with so much unknown danger so close to the airport

At least he did not use armor piercing then the incendiary rounds to light the fuel coming out of the holes the previous rounds made.

Now that makes me wonder if the stoppage in mayhem was him getting ready to bail while the airport and concert go up in flames.

Booby trap the door where he was installing the plate to hold the explosives...The drilled holes all.

Then off to the races.

"Chris Jones, an airport spokesman, said he was unaware of any rounds being recovered other than those that struck the tank."

They will not recover them because the personnel hit by them are at Area-51.
