Las Vegas shooter's laptop missing its hard drive

Posted October 26, 2017

A spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Investigation told the Los Angeles Times they had no comment Wednesday regarding the arrest.

The brother of the Las Vegas gunman, who killed 58 people and injured almost 500 more, was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles on child pornography charges, officials said. Another officer at the department confirmed the arrest. Bruce Paddock had been "squatting" inside the business on San Fernando Road following his eviction from a residence, police said.

Bruce Paddock is not considered a suspect in the Las Vegas shooting. The attack left 58 people died and more than 500 others injured.

Bruce Paddock has not been booked yet, but the official tells PEOPLE charges are expected to be filed sometime today. Stephen Paddock opened fire from the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel tower.

"I don't know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else", Bruce Paddock told the news network.

The child porn case predated the October 1 shooting, authorities said.

Investigators digging into Paddock's background also learned he purchased software created to erase files from a hard drive, but without the hard drive to examine it is impossible to know if he ever used the software, one source said.

TMZ sources also say that the investigation into Bruce began before the shooting at the Vegas music festival happened earlier this month.
