ISIS Claims Responsibility For Las Vegas Attack; FBI Says Absolutely No Link at This Time

UPDATE 11:43 am EDT: An FBI agent in Las Vegas is denying any link. 

"We have determined at this point no connection to any international terror group."

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the massacre in Las Vegas Sunday night, leaving at least 50 dead and 400 more severely injured. 

ISIS often claims responsibility for attacks without proof or evidence. It should be noted U.S. authorities have denied throughout the morning this was an act of terror. As the facts come in, things can change.

The suspect, who killed himself upon police arrival, is 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. He carried out the attack from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. He was in the hotel for days, watching as innocent people came and went to the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Last night during Jason Aldean's closing song, he reigned down a barrage of bullets on 22,000 people after shooting out the windows in his room. 

We'll bring you more as we get it.
