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.
