  • Las Vegas Shooter Moved To Nevada For Video Poker, Brother Says

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock tried to run down an FBI agent with his vehicle in Las Vegas in 1960 and wound up on the agency's most wanted list after escaping from a federal prison in Texas in 1968, when Stephen Paddock was a teen.

Stephen Paddock's father launched a violent attack in Las Vegas decades ago, with chilling parallels to his son's massacre in the same city. Refused. The FBI official said investigation would be very profound and detailed.

64-year-old Paddock killed at least 58 people and injured more than 500 after opening fire on a music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas.

A few months after his escape, Benjamin carried out a bank robbery in San Francisco-leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation to add him to their Top 10 Most Wanted list, according to VICE.

Since he has utilized firearms in previous crimes, has employed violence in attempting to evade arrest and has been diagnosed as being psychopathic, Paddock should be considered extremely unsafe.

Their father was Patrick Benjamin Paddock, who went by an alias Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, among others, according to newspaper archives.

Russian Federation would be fiercely opposed to any United States forces deploying nearby in a reunited Korea. An unprecedented provocation could set the wheels in motion at the Pentagon to take more forceful measures.


Authorities located Benjamin in the late 70s running a bingo parlor in Eugene, Oregon. He was removed from the list in 1977, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation web site.

The FBI had no comment on Benjamin Paddock.

The robber served less than half of his sentence, as he escaped in 1968 and made his way to San Francisco, where he robbed yet another bank.

Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, father of Stephen Paddock, was indicted in 1960 on three counts of robbing Phoenix branches of Valley National Bank, the Arizona Republic reported on October 6, 1960. I hardly know the family, but Steve is a nice boy.

The bureau's poster on Benjamin said he had committed armed robberies, had "suicidal tendencies", and "should be considered armed and very risky". According to The Oregonian, Paddock moved to Oregon after he escaped from prison.

But so far, the man behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history is too much of an enigma to provide even that coldest of comforts. "We didn't know him", Eric Paddock said.
