Isis has claimed responsibility for the shooting attack that has left at least 50 deadin Las Vegas.
A statement published by the group’s Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.
“The Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State in response to calls to target coalition countries,” it said.
In a second statement, Isis claimed the gunman “converted to Islam several months ago”.
YWN notes that there is no indication that the shooter had been radicalized.
U.S. law enforcement has not confirmed this claim, nor mentioned Islamic radicalization as a potential motive at this stage.
Police are still searching for a motive from gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, who shot and killed himself. He was not believed to be connected to any militant group, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters.
