BREAKING: ISIS Claims Las Vegas Shooting

Saagar Enjeti | White House Correspondent

The Islamic State’s official news agency claimed responsibility for a Las Vegas Sunday night shooting that left at least 50 dead and 200 injured.

The claim reportedly states that gunman Stephen Paddock converted to Islam months before the attack. U.S. intelligence officials are reportedly aware of the claim and are disputing the claim saying they see no evidence of the terrorist group’s connection to the attack.

New York Times ISIS correspondent Rukmini Callimachi importantly noted in late March that ISIS “has shown itself to be accurate in claiming only attacks they directed/inspired.”
