ISIS is now claiming resposibility for the Las Vegas attacks.

They claim the gunman, Stephen Paddock was a “soldier of the Islamic state” and “converted to Islam several months ago.”

Law enforcement is looking into the connection between ISIS and the attack but are saying although ISIS has delivered the statement, they may have no involvement in the event and could be trying to use psychological warfare against the US.
