A felony complaint says Paddock possessed more than 600 images of child porn between January 1 and August 30 of 2014.

TMZ said Bruce Paddock was under investigation before his brother became infamous for the Las Vegas shooting earlier this month.

Broken windows are seen on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino after a lone gunman opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival on October 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Paddock had been squatting inside the business and after his eviction, the evidence was discovered".

Investigators, however, were unable to locate Paddock because he was homeless.

The child pornography investigation took place in the 5300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez confirmed to KTLA. It wasn't immediately known if Bruce Paddock has an attorney. According to Los Angeles County criminal records, Paddock has had several run-ins with the police, including assault and battery charges in 1989 and a variety of property crimes and driving without a license around 1994 and 1995.

"I don't know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else".

Stephen Paddock killed 58 people in Las Vegas.

United States authorities have been in contact with the shooter's Australian girlfriend, Marilou Danley, and have met with Paddock's other brother, Eric.

Bruce Paddock is not the same brother that was interviewed in Orlando following the shooting.

Investigators have also learned that Paddock bought software that erases files from a hard drive, but it's unclear if he used it.
