Paddock was apprehended by a joint task force that included the FBI and LAPD at an assisted living home in North Hollywood, California. Sources speaking to TMZ said the investigation into the younger Paddock began before his brother committed the heinous murders at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on October 1. The attack left 58 people dead and over 500 others injured. It was only after his sibling’s crime that law enforcement received a tip that led them to the assisted living facility where Paddock was residing.
Upon searching the computer, police said they found child porn images.
Bruce Paddock has reportedly been arrested multiple times over the years for criminal threats, arson, vandalism, petty theft, burglary, marijuana, driving on a suspended license, and contempt. It is currently unknown how many of these arrests resulted in convictions.
