Las Vegas gunman’s brother stated that he was just a normal guy who have probably “snapped” prior to the most horrible mass shooting in US history.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Eric Paddock pointed that “something happened” to make his brother Stephen murder over 50 people and injure more than 200.
Eric added that there was “absolutely no indication he could do something like this” and said that Stephen had no political or religious association.
He continued: “He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something.”
Talking from his home in Orlando, Florida, Eric added: “We know absolutely nothing, this is just, we are dumbfounded.
“We have absolutely no idea. Our condolences go to the victims and all their families.”
Eric also said that he and 64-year-old Stephen lived on different coasts – Stephen’s last address was in Mesquite, Nevada – and that they did not speak that frequently.
Moreover, he pointed that his mother was ‘in shock’ and struggling to deal with the news.
He said: “Our family is OK, we’re sitting in here in our house hoping that everyone doesn’t attack us.
“My mother is 90 years old, lives down the street from me, we’re just completely dumbfounded
“You can imagine how this is affected her.
“He’s my brother, we don’t have a very close relationship but we talk occasionally. There’s no rhyme or reason here, it makes no sense.”
He said: “She has nothing to do with this, at least from my perspective. He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something, he was just a guy.
“He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack.”
