New Delhi:  There have been no reports of any Indian casualty in the mass shooting in Las Vegas, the External Affairs Ministry said today. "No reports have been received of any Indian nationals amongst those affected in the Las Vegas shooting incident," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

Over 50 people were killed and more than 500 injured in a mass shooting at a music concert in Las Vegas today. "Our Consulate in San Fransisco continues to monitor the situation on a real time basis," Mr Kumar said. 

The government has also set up a helpline number in the wake of the incident.
 
Terrorist group ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack, which was reported to be the worst mass shooting in America. But US officials said that there was no evidence that the shooter was linked to any international terrorist group.

ISIS issued a statement through its Amaq news agency claiming responsibility for the shooting, saying that the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.

One US official said there was reason to believe that the shooter, whom police identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, had a history of psychological problems.
