Brother of Las Vegas Gunman Stephen Paddock Arrested In Los Angeles

The brother of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock has been arrested on suspicion of child pornography, according to two law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the case.

The complaint signed Tuesday by a Los Angeles County deputy district attorney specified that between January 1 and August 30 of 2014, Bruce Paddock knowingly possessed more than 600 images of child or youth pornography involving use of a person under age 18 engaging in or simulating sexual conduct.

Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds more were wounded in the shooting October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

According to TMZ, Bruce Paddock was arrested and taken into custody early Wednesday at an assisted living home in North Hollywood, California.

Order on anthem at cinemas may change
The court said that it would not let the government shoot from its shoulders and hence it is the centre which must take the call. Tomorrow someone may say people should not come in shorts and t-shirts in cinema halls as National Anthem is played there.

Police say the alleged offences all occurred in an eight-month period, between January 1 and August 30 in 2014. "Paddock had been squatting inside the business and after his eviction, the evidence was discovered".

Authorities were unable to locate Paddock during the initial investigation. Stephen Paddock killed himself after the attack. He said he was questioned by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents after the mass shooting, mostly about his brother's childhood, NBC News reported.

An attorney who represented Bruce Paddock in past criminal matters told NBC News that he is no longer representing him and declined comment.

Bruce Paddock, 59, was arrested on a 20-count felony complaint, a police statement said.
