The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the Las Vegas shooting that took place on Sunday evening, leaving at least 50 killed and more than 200 injured.
The attack was carried out by a soldier of IS in response to calls to target coalition countries, the terrorist group said in a statement published on their news agency Amaq without providing evidence.
However, FBI said that Las Vegas shooter has no connection to the international terrorist group, according to the AP.
The attack is deemed the deadliest mass shooting in the American history.
Police and officials have earlier identified the shooter as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old American. He opened fire on the concert-goers from the 32nd floor of the hotel Mandalay Bay.
ISIS continued in its statement that Paddock converted to Islam several months ago.
