Horrific. No other words can adequately describe what has taken place in Las Vegas.
ISIS is now claiming Stephen Paddock, a sixty-four-year-old Nevada resident, had recently converted to Islam and carried out the attack. Authorities have yet to confirm that claim. Initial reports indicate Paddock, an avid hunting enthusiast and pilot, “just snapped.”
That hasn’t stopped ISIS from celebrating what is now the single deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history:
“The Las Vegas attack was carried out by a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried it out in response to calls to target states of the coalition,” the group’s news agency Amaq said in reference to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the group in the Middle East.
“The Las Vegas attacker converted to Islam a few months ago,” Amaq added. LINK
