News from the US has this morning reported that the brother of Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has been arrested for child pornography.

TMZ reported that Bruce Paddock was taken into police custody following a complaint which connected Paddock with the ownership of over 600 images of children in porn.

The report also claims Paddock has been linked with a total of 20 criminal counts, though the other 19 have not been disclosed.

Paddock was residing in an assisted living facility.

The world is still in shock, mourning and disbelief following the horrific shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas, which has left 58 people dead and over 515 injured.

It marked the 270th mass shooting in America this year.

The gunman was named as 64-year-old retiree Stephen Paddock. It’s believed the lone gunman began shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel into the 30, 000 strong crowd of punters at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

Not even a week later a sex worker revealed Stephen Paddock enjoyed acting out violent rape fantasies and would aggressively rant about conspiracy theories.

The 27-year-old escort said she saw the 64-year-old gunman around nine times from late 2015 to mid-2016 when he visited Las Vegas.

“When I first met Stephen I had left an abusive relationship and was starting all over again with nothing but the clothes I was wearing,” she told The Sun.

Police have said they still don’t have a clear motive for Stephen’s weekends.
