ISIS claimed responsibility Tuesday for the attack at a Texas event featuring caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad — but did not provide evidence to support its claim.

Charlie Winter, an NBC News counter-terrorism consultant, confirmed that ISIS said in an official radio broadcast Tuesday that two of its "soldiers" had carried out the attack in Garland, Texas.

Winter — who is also a researcher at the London-based Quilliam Foundation think tank — said the broadbast also warned that "worse" things are coming for America.
