The Islamic State has claimed that the Las Vegas shooter was a soldier of ISIS who had converted to Islam several months ago. This is not surprising since ISIS often make such claims when there are terrorist attacks or mass shootings. However, at this point, there is no proof that the shooter, Stephen Paddock had any terrorist connections or even any political affiliations.
The motive for the shootings is under investigation, and a search of the shooter’s home has found additional firearms, ammunition, and explosives. Several electronic devices were found and are being searched for any clues as to the true motive.
