At least 58 people were killed and more than 500 were injured after a man opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday in what appears to be the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Police say Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel and casino. A SWAT team later found Paddock dead in a hotel room.

Police have also located a woman named Marilou Danley who was believed to be Paddock’s companion. Authorities do not believe Danley was involved in the shooting.

A motive for Paddock’s mass shooting is not yet known. ISIS on Monday claimed responsibility for the assault, but the group offered no evidence to back itself up. The FBI has since denied that Paddock had any connection to ISIS.

  1. Daesh seems to always claim responsibility for violent acts of terror, all over the world for some obscure reason best known to itself!

    They are one of the MOST anti-Islam outfits imaginable since they disguise their acts by giving themselves Islamic names, yet are butchers for want of a better word. They have NOTHING whatsoever to do with Islam and I wish the media world wide would NOT refer to them as ISIS…

    • @ rmohamadali, NO I desagree with you 100 percent.
      –NOTHING whatsoever to do with Islam and I wish the media world wide would NOT refer to them as ISIS…–

      Most Islamic Clerics in the world do not tell the TRUTH, they spread the wrong statement and mislead people.
      Daesh or ISIS. Taliban, Al Qaida are Muslim, they worship Allah, they pray 5 times a day even MORE than us.

      What is wrong with them?
      1. They follow beside Holy Quran, the book of Hadith, as you know that the book of Hadith are not the word of Allah, but men ( Idol, imam ). Idols mislead most Muslim who believe in The sunnah blindly.. as you know that IDOLS such as Imam Muslim- Bukhari command Muslims to punish and kill ; infidel, blasphemer, apostacy, gay lesbian and even Muslims who do not follow his CALIPHATE.

      Bothers, we have to be honest, clerics have to be Honest, do not be ashame to blame our Islamic teaching that has been contaminated with IDOLS teaching.

      Most muslims around the world have becamo hypocrate without their reliazing it. Very sad, we become the victim of our wrong deed.
      This is the main mistake Of Daesh, Or Islamic terrorist.
      If Muslims do not correct this mistake, Allah will continue to punish Million Muslim ahead. Refer to 7:2-5. Please look at Al Quran, very clear warning from Allah almighty.
      Allah say: ONLY FEW people will enter His Heaven, most od us will go to Hell. Believe or not.
