Bruce Paddock the younger brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested for child porn at an assisted living center in North Hollywood California on Wednesday

Bruce Paddock, the estranged brother of Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock, has been detained by Los Angeles authorities on accusations of possessing child pornography, PEOPLE confirms.

Bruce Paddock, the brother of Stephen Paddock, was taken into custody at an assisted living home in North Hollywood Wednesday.

There were 58 people killed and hundreds more wounded October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

This is a developing story.

Police said the case was unrelated to the Las Vegas shooting.

Also present are specially-designed 19-inch custom wheels that Ford claim will deliver better handling and steering response. Ford has revealed another optional upgrade package for the Mustang, but for now it's only available in the States.

Bruce Paddock has not been booked yet, but the official tells PEOPLE charges are expected to be filed sometime today.

The felony complaint for his arrest alleges one count of possession of child or youth pornography and 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

The hard drive may have contained potential key evidence to Paddock's motive, the report said.

Sources also informed them that prior to Stephen Paddock's mass shooting, police were attempting to locate his brother, Bruce, without success.

Paddock is believed to have removed the hard drive before fatally shooting himself, and the missing device has not yet been recovered, sources told ABC News. Police have found no such connection, however. Authorities have reached out and spoken to Paddock's family and girlfriend.
