Sources told TMZ the investigation began before Paddock’s brother, Stephen, fired into a crowd of concertgoers from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino earlier this month. The FBI and the Los Angeles Police Department were involved in the investigation, according to TMZ.
Paddock was reportedly living at the assisted living facility.
