Las Vegas Shooter's Brother Bruce Paddock Booby-Trapped His Homes?

Las Vegas Shooter's Brother Bruce Paddock Booby-Trapped His Homes?

A brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of possessing child pornography, authorities said Wednesday. He's accused of being in possession of more than 600 images of child or youth pornography, including 10 or more images of a minor under 12 years old. Police in California say their investigation predates the October 1 massacre in Las Vegas carried out by his brother, Stephen, which killed 58 people and wounded 546.

Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer provided what she called a preliminary figure of $3.5 million for department costs associated with the worst mass shooting in modern USA history. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have said they believe he acted alone.

Brian added that after Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, "we were anxious (Bruce) might come here and do something insane".

Bruce is one of Stephen Paddock's three brothers. Paddock also threatened to set the garage on fire. He was being held on $60,000 bail at the Metropolitan Detention Center.

"I know investigation is in its early stages, but we need more frequent updates on the status of investigation", one user wrote in response to the photo.

However, the LAPD "recently" tracked him down at a North Hollywood property, from where he was arrested on October 25. It wasn't suicide by cop since he killed himself. "At the time of the initial investigation, Paddock was a transient and could not be located". "He killed a bunch of people and then killed himself so he didn't have to face whatever it was".

Bruce Paddock reportedly had a long criminal history and over the years has been charged with various crimes including arson and burglary, AFP reported.

"I'm not proud of it", he said of the vandalism case.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal wrote in an article published Thursday that it was told twice by police that Lombardo is not conducting interviews - a stark contrast to the days after the shooting when he would appear in front of the cameras frequently, sometimes multiple times in the same day. The only family member he has reached is his mother who is "yelling at me all the time not to talk to anyone".
