SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Two flights en route to Nevada were diverted to Salt Lake International Airport following a deadly mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday.
The flights from Denver and Minneapolis landed at the Salt Lake Airport after flights going in and out of McCarran were temporarily stopped in response to Sunday night’s shooting that left at least 50 people dead (the number 50 is as of 6:00 a.m. Monday morning). Passengers on flights diverted here to Salt Lake International did not deplane.
Limited flight activity in and out of the McCarran resumed overnight.
Monday morning flights from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas, and from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City, were not affected.
Airport officials are encouraging travelers to check their flight status online before arriving to the airport.
This is a developing story. ABC4 Utah will continue to monitor the situation and bring you updates as they become available.
