The arrest of Bruce Paddock was confirmed by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation, but not authorized to discuss it publicly.

Paddock is not considered a suspect in the Las Vegas shooting, which left 59 people dead, including the gunman Stephen Paddock.

 

The child porn case predated the Oct. 1 shooting, authorities said. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.

In addition to the 58 victims in the Las Vegas massacre, hundreds more were wounded on Oct. 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Police said Stephen Paddock opened fire from a window on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. He was found dead in his hotel room when authorities got there.
