    According to this article, he was an average guy.

    Just heard he only had one traffic violation in Vegas, none in his town of Mesquite.

    oooh noooo...I can't believe these numbers , it's just too horrendous....One man...10 machine guns in the room with him according to the latest reports




    I haven't seen it myself but a good friend in the USA has just seen an interview with the killers' brother and they've said that the brother seemed rather odd too....

    Yes, I saw the interview with the brother and I thought he was weird also...not what my reaction would be if my brother had done something so horrid.

    @Ken Anderson should move it to the news section.

    I saw him just now - he was 'totally' shocked
    His words also showed his shock, the slight variation in tone, which may have come across as a giggle
    did not to me. Nerves can do that to the voice. He seemed very genuine

    This is from CNN...seems his dad had some issues in the past.

    Shooter's dad was a bank robber on the FBI most wanted list
    From CNN's Evan Perez, Jay Shaylor, John Couwels and David Shortell:

    Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock’s father was previously on the FBI’s most wanted list, the FBI confirms.

    The FBI lists Benjamin Hoskins Paddock as on the FBI’s most wanted list from June 10, 1969 until May 5, 1977. A most wanted poster lists multiple aliases for Paddock as well.

    Eric Paddock, Stephen Paddock's brother, told CNN that their father died a few years ago. Eric Paddock says he was born while his father was on the run.

    An FBI most wanted poster from 1969 says Paddock was convicted of bank robbery, automobile larceny, and “confidence game.” The poster calls him “psychopathic” and says he “has carried firearms in commission of bank robberies,” and that he “reportedly has suicidal tendencies and should be considered armed and very dangerous.”

    It does sound that way....but he really was just a normal person until this happened. At least it seems that way on the surface.

    This guy makes lots of errors in his statements....

    Also, maybe people thought there were more shooters because of the two broken windows.

    I think the woman yelling they're going to be killed tonight has been debunked...just a drunk woman celebrating 21sr bday an dher friend.

    I really hate this kind of of stuff popping up on YouTube just for clicks....I don't know who that guy in the video is but he sounds like a fruitcake. People like him scare me more than the lone crazy shooter.

    If I offend anyone with that then I'm sorry but he sounds crazy to me. What a crazy world we live in!

    I wonder if he had lost a lot of money in Vegas, his brother did say he was a high stakes gambler. I'm sure that's one of the first things they looked at...in Vegas.

    One thing Vegas hotels have is cameras...EVERYWHERE. I'm sure he'll be on them and they'll see how he took those weapons to his room(s) over about 4 days.
