Bruce Paddock, Brother Of Las Vegas Shooter Arrested In US

Bruce Paddock, the brother of Las Vegas killer Stephen Paddock, has been arrested in the US on charges of possessing child pornography.

Bruce was detained in Los Angeles after police had been alerted that his computer contained material relating to child sex abuse. He was taken into custody after police obtained a warrant for his arrest.

The Los Angeles Police Department have said that their investigation started after evidence had been found in a business in Sun Valley, California.

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

It is alleged that Bruce Paddock possessed over 600 images of child or youth pornography.

He is currently being held at the Los Angeles Police Department's Metropolitan Detention Center and his bail has been set at $60,000.

This comes almost a month after his brother Stephen Paddock carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history killing almost 60 people at a music festival in Las Vegas.
