Brother of Las Vegas shooter suspected of child porn possession

The brother of Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has been arrested for child porn... TMZ has learned

Stephen Paddock's brother, Bruce Paddock, was taken into custody in North Hollywood and is facing charges related to a child porn investigation, according to reports from the Los Angeles Times and several other media reports.

The complaint signed Tuesday by a Los Angeles County prosecutor alleges Bruce Douglas Paddock possessed more than 600 images of child or youth pornography between January 1 and August 30 of 2014.

The child pornography investigation began prior to Stephen Paddock's shooting rampage on the Las Vegas Strip on October 1 that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more, the Associated Press reported.

Police say the alleged offences all occurred in an eight-month period, between January 1 and August 30 in 2014.

Bruce Paddock has previous convictions for vandalism, criminal threats and theft, NBC reported, citing court records.


The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office filed one count of possession of over 600 images of child pornography and 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child, police said.

Police said the case was unrelated to the Las Vegas shooting.

According to the LAPD, officials began investigating Paddock after finding evidence at a business where the 59-year-old had been squatting.

Investigators, however, were unable to locate Paddock because he was homeless. After the shooting, another brother, Eric Paddock, spoke out about his shock at the shooting.

Paddock committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history Sunday night when he shot into a crowd killing 49 people and wounding over 500.
