No evidence Las Vegas shooter tied to militant group

FBI: Vegas shooter had no ties to terror group

Still without providing any evidence, ISIS once again-for a fourth time-claimed it was responsible for the mass murder that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night.

Eventually, renowned news organizations shared breaking news that ISIS claimed the responsibility for the inhuman Las Vegas shooting.

Stephen Paddock was a "crusader", the Islamic State claims without evidence.

In a later statement from Islamic State, the militant group referred to the Las Vegas attacker by a nom de guerre of "Abu Abd al-Bar al-Ameriki". "For terrorist groups, being in the news is one of the validations that they have an impact", he said.

His brother, Eric Paddock, has also said that the killer had "no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know". Paddock killed himself as police closed in, making it easier for ISIS to make the claim.

At least 58 people have been killed and more than 500 wounded in the deadliest mass shooting ever in American history.

Another Oct. 2 communication claims that Paddock was acting under the requests of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for the objective of "targeting the coalition governments".

But police later identified the attacker as a heavily indebted Filipino gambling addict, saying it was a botched robbery that was not terrorism-related.

He urged followers to "intensify one attack after another against the infidels", following a spike in global terror attacks. The group also claimed a knife attack on Sunday that killed two women in Marseille, France, but French authorities say they have found no link between the attacker and ISIS. "This is about trying to remain in the news cycle, trying to say we are still here", he said.

The Islamic State's unsubstantiated claim, released on Monday, didn't mention gunman Stephen Paddock by name, and came amid rampant speculation about the attacker's identity and motives.

U.S. President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, participate in a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC, October 2, 2017, for the victims of the shooting yesterday in Las Vegas, Nevada. "This is merely a way to garner more attention. even though the claim is patently. false".
