Update: 58 Killed, 515 Wounded In Las Vegas Shooting... Islamic group claims responsibility

Another heartless act. Fifty-eight people are now known to have been killed in a mass shooting at an open air concert in Las Vegas while another 515 were wounded.

“The number of people who have died associated with this event has increased. Right now we’re using the number of 58,” Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters.

“The number of injured — we are using the number of 515.”

The Islamic State group claimed Monday that the shooting massacre in Las Vegas was carried out by one of its “soldiers” who had “converted to Islam several months ago”.

“The executor of the Las Vegas attack is a soldier of the Islamic State and he carried out the operation as a response” to countries engaged in military action against the jihadists, IS’s propaganda outlet Amaq said in online statements.

The terrorists provided no evidence to back up their claim.
