Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's brother arrested in North Hollywood

Bruce Paddock the younger brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested for child porn at an assisted living center in North Hollywood California on Wednesday

Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock apparently removed the hard drive from his laptop computer before he fatally shot himself.

Bruce Paddock, 59, was detained Wednesday morning by police in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of North Hollywood.

Stephen Paddock's brother, Bruce Paddock, was taken into custody in North Hollywood and is facing charges related to a child porn investigation, according to reports from the Los Angeles Times and several other media reports.

Authorities suspect that Paddock bought software that enabled him to erase files from his hard drive but could not confirm he used the software without examining the hard drive, a source told ABC News.

The incident became the largest mass shooting in U.S. modern history, leaving 58 dead and wounding more than 500.

While Paddock's motives still aren't clear, investigators have started to get a better understanding of his mental well being in the lead up to the attack. Paddock had been under investigation long before his brother Stephen killed 58 people, but police weren't able to figure out where Bruce was until recently.

Tampa police say 3 killings in 11 days are linked
Police are not labeling the suspect as a serial killer at this point, and they are frustrated with the unsolved cases, Dugan said. Naiboa's mother, Maria Rodriguez, told Fox 13 that she became anxious when her son wouldn't answer his phone Thursday night .

Bruce Paddock was the silent brother after the shooting took place on October 1 in Las Vegas where 58 people were killed.

It was not immediately clear Wednesday if he has retained an attorney.

Paddock's family has a criminal history as well.

A motive for the mass killing has not been released by authorities investigating the murders.

In 2007, Virginia Tech shooter Cho Seung Hui removed the hard drive of his computer and disposed of his cell phone shortly before the massacre.
