By now you probably know that Stephen Craig Paddock is the man responsible for killing 50 and injuring over 400 others in Las Vegas.
He opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. His intended targets were Jason Aldean concertgoers.
Paddock then ended his own life. He had 10 rifles on his person during the shooting.
Now, ISIS is taking credit for the killings. No joke.
The Independent reports:
Isis has claimed responsibility for the shooting attack that has left at least 50 dead in Las Vegas.
A statement published by the group’s Amaq propaganda agency claimed the attacker was a “soldier of the Islamic State”.
In another statement, ISIS says Paddock converted to Islam “months ago.”
Is this legitimate?

There are conflicting reports, to be certain. Vegas Police have located Paddock’s roommate, Marilou Danley of the Phillipines – where ISIS has a presence.
Stay tuned for more… AND share this to get this out. The media doesn’t want this to get out because it’ll ruin their narrative for more gun control
