Vegas Shooter’s Brother Facing Child Porn Charges

(Los Angeles, CA) — The brother of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock is being ordered to stand trial in Los Angeles on a single felony count of possessing over 600 images of child pornography.

Bruce Paddock is free on bail and appeared yesterday in a downtown L.A. courtroom in a wheelchair. Prosecutors say the crimes occurred between January and August of 2014.

The 59-year-old defendant was arrested last October at an assisted living facility in North Hollywood. LAPD officials began investigating Paddock after evidence was discovered inside a business in the nine-thousand block of San Fernando Road in Sun Valley. The investigation began before last year’s shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead.
