An official told the Associated Press that the investigation of Paddock’s brother, Bruce, began prior to the shooting incident, but police were unable to locate him.

Paddock also has another brother, Eric, who lives in Florida and who has opened up to the media since the Las Vegas shooting.

After events unfolded in Las Vegas, police were tipped off that Bruce Paddock was storing porn on his computer at his assisted living home in North Hollywood, California, where he was awaiting surgery.

After searching his computer, the police department confirmed that there were child pornography images stored on it.

The New York Post reports that Bruce Paddock previously committed multiple crimes, including arson, vandalism, burglary and petty theft.

Bruce Paddock remains in police custody.
