Before Sunday, the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history took place in June 2016, when a gunman who professed support for Muslim extremist groups opened fire at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people. If true, Paddock would be the oldest American Isis recruit by almost a decade, and its members are typically young, non-white men.

It typically uses the platform for official claims of responsibility. Some claims have simply been false.
It came as big unfortunate news to everyone when shooting incident in Las Vegas claimed several lives and left more than 500 injured. Both were said to have been planned and directed by ISIS.

An intercepted ISIS communication from October 2 claims credit for the shooting in Las Vegas on October 1.
"To take responsibility for a deranged American, a criminal American, tells you exactly that this is about media narrative".
Rouse was reacting to a statement ISIS released earlier, which read: "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". "This is about trying to remain in the news cycle, trying to say we are still here", he said.
The claim is likely false and is a result of an "ISIS, desperate for attention".
