Las Vegas massacre: why did Stephen Paddock open fire? The theories

DONALD TRUMP ISIS penned a message to the US warning'submit or be slaughtered
The quick responsibility claim - discounted by Federal Bureau of Investigation officials - is the latest in a series of dubious or seemingly fake ISIS claims, reflecting the extremists' eagerness to latch onto global attacks it can tout as its own as it fights for survival in its Mideast base.
Investigators have not found evidence linking Paddock to any foreign terror group, and he was not known to have strong religious beliefs.
Before Sunday, the deadliest mass shooting in modern US 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.
Paddock's apparent suicide also conflicts with jihadi ideals of "martyrdom", which normally sees Isis-inspired attackers kill themselves in suicide bombings or by forcing security forces to shoot them dead.
But police later identified the attacker as a heavily indebted Filipino gambling addict, saying it was a botched robbery that was not terrorism-related.
From Orlando, Florida, to Manchester and London in the U.K, to the Champs Elysee in Paris to Bangladesh, Libya, Syria and Yemen - nearly every day, the group claims responsibility for an attack somewhere in the world. Some claims have simply been false.
At least 58 people have been killed and more than 500 wounded in the deadliest mass shooting ever in American history. Both were said to have been planned and directed by ISIS.
A 46-minute audio recording appeared to show Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi praise the jihadis killed in the battle to retake Mosul and other former Isis territories.
Authorities have yet to identify a motive for the shooting, and said initially there was no evidence of any connection to global terrorism. He said of renewed calls for greater gun control that "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".
The statement, in Arabic, read, "Attacker of the #Las_Vegas shooting is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to targeting coalition countries".
An intercepted ISIS communication from October 2 claims credit for the shooting in Las Vegas on October 1.
"ISIS is essentially trying to piggyback on the atrocity in Las Vegas", said Colin P. Clarke, an expert at the RAND Corporation.
However, the group remains active in recruiting followers on social media, and has repeatedly called on its supporters to carry out attacks in Western nations.
