Nevada state law defines Las Vegas mass shooting as an act of terrorism | The Independent

Police investigating the mass shooting of concert-goers at a music festival in Las Vegas have said they are not treating the incident as an act of terrorism.

But Nevada law suggests the Sunday night massacre of at least 50 people can be defined as such.

The state’s statute says an “act of terrorism means any act that involves the use or attempted use of sabotage, coercion or violence which is intended to cause great bodily harm or death to the general population”.
