The four people in this picture have nothing to do with the Las Vegas shooting. Stephen Paddock has been confirmed to be the only shooter, and he opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Antifa Claiming Responsibility for the attack
The Puppet String News website published a story including a screenshot about the “Melbourne Antifa”’s Facebook page, which said:
“One of our comrades from our Las Vegas branch has made these fascist Trump supporting dogs pay.”
However, no evidence has emerged that the Australian group — or any other Antifa group — is associated to the Las Vegas shooting
Report of missing people from previous attacks (Source: Buzzfeed)
BuzzFeed collected a list of fake missing people from the Las Vegas shooting that included missing people who were actually a porn star, a comedian, a German soccer player, and a suspect in a Mexican murder case..
Attack linked to ISIS (source: Vox)
If you searched at around 3 pm Monday, you would find many top articles relating the Las Vegas shooting to ISIS based on the fact that ISIS apparently claimed the attack. It’s easy to see why ISIS would make such a claim – amplified by the social media coverage – that it was behind the attack. It’s however no proof at all that it indeed was behind it.
This is real thing. Clearly coordinated Muslim terror attack. PRAY for our Vegas police. PRAY for victims. VERY bad. Awful.
