AP is reporting that the Islamic State group on Monday claimed responsibility for the mass shooting in Las Vegas, saying the perpetrator was “a soldier” who had converted to Islam months ago, without providing any evidence to support the claim.
The group’s Aamaq news agency released two brief statements hours after the shooting at a country music concert that killed at least 50 people and wounded at least 400.
This is the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
