ISIS claims responsibility for Las Vegas attack
Las Vegas: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group on Monday claimed responsibility for the mass shooting at a Las Vegas music concert in which at least 50 people were killed and over 400 injured, a media report said.
Citing an unnamed ISIS propaganda agency, the AFP reported that the terror outfit has claimed responsibility for the Sunday night’s horrific attack.
The fatalities took place when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at a music festival from a nearby hotel. The police shot him dead.
An initial probe shows Paddock was travelling with a female companion named Marilou Danley hours before the attack. A search is currently on to nab Danley.
Paddock lived in a two-bedroom home in Mesquite, Nevada, some 80 miles from Las Vegas, police said.
