Brother of Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Arrested by LAPD

A laptop found in Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock's hotel room was missing its hard drive - depriving officials of possible clues on why he unleashed his attack, ABC News reports.

A felony complaint alleges that between January 2014 and August 2014, Bruce Paddock possessed over 600 images of child or youth pornography.

No one knew of his whereabouts after he was evicted from the shop in 2014, but police have been looking for him since.

His older brother, Stephen Paddock, was behind the deadliest mass shooting in USA history when he began to fire on a concert crowd from the 32-floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.

Bruce Paddock was arrested early Wednesday in North Hollywood.
