FBI confirm Las Vegas gunman had no known connections to ISIS despite the terrorist group claiming they were behind the attack

According to latest reports in the US, the FBI have confirmed that the lone gunman behind the Las Vegas shooting attack was not part of any terrorist group.

The statement comes just a mere few hours after the Islamic terrorist organisation ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack that has left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured.

It is believed the FBI were forced to deny the initial report that claimed the gunman who has been identified as Stephen Paddock had links to the terrorist group.

The FBI say Mr Paddock had no known links to the group and he carried out the devastating attack on his own.

It comes less than few ISIS apparently claimed in a post on their website that they recruited a lone “solider of islamic state” to carryout the attack on their behalf.
