According to a new report, Bruce Paddock, the brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, bragged about the mass shooting attack.

TMZ reports, “the day after Stephen Paddock slaughtered 58 people, his brother Bruce bragged to folks at the assisted living facility, where he was staying, that Stephen was his brother.”

Bruce Paddock was arrested for child porn charges last month following the shooting. There was a warrant out for Paddock for those charges previously, but evaded getting caught by police for years.

Paddock was arrested after police discovered the warrant while seeking to talk to him following his brother committing the worst mass shooting in modern American history.

Over a month after the shooting, there is still no known motive for Stephen Paddock’s actions. The Islamic State initially claimed responsibility for the attacks, but there is little evidence that is true.

Clark Country Sheriff Joseph Lombardo claimed in a press conference days after the attack that one had to assume Paddock “had help” in the attack. (RELATED: Las Vegas Sheriff: Have To Assume ‘He Had Help’ [VIDEO])
