Alright, I just played a quick game, and although this situation didn't come up, it crossed my mind: What if you destroy a transport, but have more guns in that squad to shoot with?
Squad 1 shoots rhino with weapon x, kills it.
Squad 2 disembarks from destroyed rhino.
Squad 1 still has weapon y to shoot.
Does the Squad 2 count as the same target as the rhino? Or is it once the transport is blown, that's the end of the shooting for Squad 1?
Also, what order of events does a penetrating roll of 5 go in? Vehicle is scattered THEN troops inside it disembark, or other way around?
The squad's target is the rhino, so I believe you continue to fire on the Rhino. You should probably roll each weapon's to hit, armor pen, and damage roll. I mean, if you were to shoot a vehicle hard enough to merely destroy it, and the gun team a little down the line fires a lascannon and causes a penetration roll of 6, he still nuked it even though you disabled it.
The Good News is here!

a squad as a whole can only shoot at one target unit a turn. the only exception to this that i know of is the Tau crisis thing where the commander can hit a different target if he has multi-trackers (i think thats the add-on). so if your squad 1 destroyed the tank and squad 2 came out, then squad 1 is completely done firing, can not shoot any more that turn, if you want to hit squad 2 you need to use another unit. in short: a squad can only target 1 enemy unit a turn for shooting purposes (unless codex says otherwise). squad 2 is different than the rhino.
the BBB clearly states, you resolve all rolls to hit for a guven unit, then rolls to wound..so no, all shots will be taken at the Rhino, but another unit can shoot at them....

All squad shooting is done simultaneously, at the same target. If you've a squad with say 1 missile launcher and 7 bolters and you fire at a rhino, the bolters do nothing (unless it's rear), though the missile launcher has a chance of destroying the thing. If it does, the transported unit pops out, but you cannot use the bolter-wielding models in the same squad to shoot at them, as this is a new target.
