Las Vegas Mass Shooter's Brother Gives Another Rambling Speech To The Press — Watch

eric paddock second interview

Many are still trying to wrap their heads around the mass shooting which occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday.

As you surely know, the Route 91 Harvest Festival ended in tragedy when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock began raining bullets on the 22,000 person crowd. The gunman killed at least 59 people and injured around 527 others before taking his own life.

Paddock's suicide has complicated this situation as the authorities have been scrambling to find an answer as to why, this seemingly normal guy, would become a domestic terrorist. And the authorities aren't the only baffled ones as Stephen's brother, Eric Paddock, is also struggling to comprehend the devastation his flesh-and-blood caused.

On Tuesday, Mr. Paddock spoke with the press again where he gave a rambling speech about his brother's character and defended the culprit's recent decision to wire $100K to a girlfriend in the Philippines. Although the girlfriend in question is still considered a person of interest by law enforcement, Eric believes

Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Was A Millionaire Gambler Who Had Worked For Government Agencies Over The Years

More details have surfaced about Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock.

Years before he orchestrated the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, the 64-year-old had worked several jobs in government agencies — including the U.S. Postal Service and the IRS.

On Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the Office of Personnel Management told The Associated Press that Paddock had worked as a mail carrier from 1976 to 1978 in between graduating from Cal State Northridge in 1977.

After that, he worked as an agent for the Internal Revenue Service for six years until 1984, then worked a defense auditing job for about 18 months for a company that became Lockheed Martin, one of the world's largest defense contractors.

Even though Paddock's father was a notorious fugitive bank robber, law enforcement officials cannot explain what would motivate the gambler with no known criminal record to cause such a massacre.

Officials have noted that Paddock is much older than the typical shooter, and was not known to be suffering from mental illness. On the surface, he seemed to be living a comfortable life just north of Vegas.

Eric Paddock told the AP the last time he talked to his brother was

Las Vegas Shooter's Estranged Father Was On The FBI's Most Wanted List — Here's What Police Know About Stephen Paddock

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadViolenceViral: News

Stephen Paddock's family is "dumbfounded" that the 64-year-old is suspected of killing at least 58 people and injuring over 500 in Las Vegas on Sunday night. The tragedy is the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Authorities believe the shooter had acted alone when he opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino at a large crowd of concertgoers across the street, but are still scratching their heads in figuring out a motive.

Police said Paddock had no criminal history, aside from a minor citation, so authorities had no information on the suspect. His brother Eric told reporters that Stephen was "just a guy" and had "no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know."

ISIS did claim responsibility for the attack, but officials have found no connections between the terrorist group and Paddock. An official told ABC News:

"The FBI stated there is no apparent tie to international terrorism. Perhaps ISIS is just trying to take credit."

While the suspect doesn't have a record, his name still might ring a bell to investigators. Eric told WFTS that their estranged father Benjamin Hoskins Paddock was a notorious bank robber who spent several years on the FBI's "Most Wanted Fugitives" list.

ABC News reports that a poster circulating back in 1969 describes Benjamin as "psychopathic" with "suicidal tendencies" and "should be

Eric Paddock

Eric Paddock is "completely dumbfounded" by his brother Stephen Paddock's attack on the Las Vegas strip.

As we've reported, the 64-year-old killed at least 50 people and injured more than 400 others when he opened fire during Jason Aldean's set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night. He is suspected to have killed himself just as police stormed his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, where they also found at least 10 rifles in his possession.

On Monday, FBI agents searched the shooter's brother's home in Orlando.
