Vegas Shooter Was an Accountant. Dad Was a Bank Robber

Stephen Paddock, the man police say killed at least 58 people on the Las Vegas Strip, was a retired accountant who enjoyed playing $100-a-hand poker, his brother says.
Eric Paddock of Orlando, Florida, also told CNN their father was a bank robber.

Authorities say Stephen Paddock, 64, lived within easy driving distance of Las Vegas, had a pilot’s license and had legally purchased some guns.

But investigators haven’t determined a motive for the Sunday night shooting.

Here’s what we know so far about the man responsible for the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Eric Paddock told CNN on Monday his brother had worked as an accountant and had plenty of money.
“He was a wealthy guy playing video poker… on cruises,” he said, adding that his brother could afford anything he wanted and played $100-a-hand poker.
Their father was a well-known bank robber and at one point was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list, he said. Their father died a few years ago.
Stephen Paddock had been married in the past and lived with his girlfriend, Eric Paddock said, but he didn’t know of any children.

“He was my brother and it’s like an asteroid fell out of the sky,” Eric Paddock said.
