IS claims responsibility for the mass shooting in Las Vegas where 59 people were killed and more than 527 wounded, and said the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago have been disputed . Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, a resident of nearby Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on a country music festival taking place at Las Vegas Village from a room across the street in the Mandalay Bay Hotel just after 10 pm on Sunday evening.

However, by Monday morning, FBI investigators had ‘determined that there is NO connection between the Vegas Shooter and IS or International terrorism.’ It came after the claim was disputed down by unnamed US officials, who said there is no evidence he was linked to IS. Paddock’s family had earlier said he had no religious or political affiliations.
