FBI: ‘No connection’ found between Las Vegas shooter and Islamic State

CAIRO/WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (Reuters) – Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a shooting that killed at least 50 people and wounded over 400 in Las Vegas early on Monday, however, U.S. officials said that there was no evidence the shooter was linked to the group.

An FBI special agent said on Monday that there was “no connection” between the shooter and an international terrorist group.

One U.S. 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.
