Authorities still have no motive for Stephen Paddock’s shooting rampage during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas earlier this month where 58 people ultimately died, but they do have just cause for arresting his brother, Bruce Paddock.

Bruce was arrested in North Hollywood and taken into custody on suspicion of possessing hundreds of images of child pornography, according to an LA Times report.

The Times also reported that, “Documents filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court outlined 20 criminal charges against Paddock, all related to possession of child pornography or the sexual exploitation of a child. The felony complaint for arrest warrant said that Paddock stands accused of having more than 600 images of child or youth pornography, including 10 or more images showing a child younger than 12.”

So far there are no ties to the Las Vegas shooting.
