ISIS: We Were Responsible for Las Vegas

The extremist group's Aamaq news agency used to be a relatively reliable source of information, but in recent years has made increasingly exaggerated or false claims. Far from the confident propaganda it pumped out when it controlled a pseudo state, the group now justifies its losses to its supporters and urges them not to give up the fight. The ISIS statement did not provide a shred of evidence to support its claim that he was a "soldier" from its ranks, saying only that the man, who it identified by the alleged pseudonym "Abu el-Bar al-Amriki", had converted to Islam three years ago.

More than 50 people have been confirmed dead and 200 injured in the shooting, making it the deadliest in USA history.

Despite the terrorist group's past prudence, Federal Bureau of Investigation officials say there is no connection between shooter Stephen Paddock and an worldwide terrorist group, or any evidence that indicates he was inspired by ISIS.

The FBI said there is no proof the attack was linked to an global terrorist group.

Paddock reportedly killed himself as police moved in on the 32nd-floor hotel room he was using to shoot down on the crowd.

The Isis group does not claim credit for every attack but often claims the ones by individuals inspired by its message but with no known links to the group.

In June, the group claimed an attack by a gunman who ignited a casino fire that left 36 people dead in the Philippine capital, Manila.

"This is about trying to remain in the news cycle, trying to say we are still here", he said.

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".

For one, such a claim guarantees relevance for ISIS by keeping it in the news, terrorism expert Bruce Hoffman told Business Insider.
