Every jihad terrorist attack is met with claims of mental illness. Considering how frequently US and European government officials, law enforcement and media elites call jihad “mental illness,” perhaps he was a convert after all.
How could they know that? And how do they know he didn’t convert?
Historically, ISIS has not taken credit for attacks that were not theirs.
At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 injured at the Route 91 country music event near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that two off-duty police officers were among those killed. At least two on-duty officers were also injured. One was in a stable condition after surgery and another sustained minor injuries. It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, with the death toll surpassing the 49 killed at a nightclub in Orlando in June 2016.

US Officials: No evidence Las Vegas shooter tied to militant group
By Reuters, October 2, 2017:
President Donald Trump called the event an “act of pure evil.”
WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (Reuters) – Two senior US officials said on Monday that there was no evidence that the shooter who killed at least 50 people in Las Vegas was tied to any international militant group.
Islamic State issued a statement through its news agency Amaq claiming responsibility for the shooting, saying that the attacker had converted to Islam a few months ago.
But one of the two US officials discounted Islamic State’s claim of responsibility and said there was reason to believe that the shooter, whom police identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, had a history of psychological problems.
