6:33 am
history, both physically and mentally. they say they haven't found anything to lead them to think it wauz trigger for what happened here. that's the big thing here, scott and laura. they have a lot of evidence they are compiling, not only on the ground, but through interviews and reviewing electronics. the one thing they don't have is why. they can't understand why this is happening. that's one thing a lot of us who have been watching, hope they can determine at some point. >> completely. exactly. thank you so much, i know you have been there all week. continuing to dig for information there. it is 6:33 right now. more details we have on the investigation, authorities looking into if stephen paddock had another target while shooting. they found bullet holes 2,000 feet away at the tanks at the airport. it's unclear if they were targeted or if the bullets

6:36 am
during those business hours are going to have a protective enclosure in place in that work area. since that removal process can cause dusting or flaking that can make it hazardous for folks. bart is informing them about the removal process. passengers have nothing to fear. it is common practice to remove asbestos from older buildings. we talked to passengers to get their thoughts on the subject. >> if it's dangerous to the public, it's better to get it out. i think, you know, if they know there's a danger. >> know that it's happening. so, if i'm unaware of all this and walking through places, people should know. >> reporter: bart recently removed asbestos as well as lead paint from eight stations this summer. a special filtering system will be in place here at the station to ensure air at the station
