WATCH: Stephen Paddock’s Brother Says Shooting ‘Makes No Sense’

Stephen Paddock’s brother, Eric, spoke to CNN about the Las Vegas concert shooting that took place on Sunday night.

“It’s like an asteroid fell out of the sky,” Eric Paddock told CNN. “It’s just… he bought the machine guns and he did this. It was him who did this, there’s no doubt about it. Because he was him. He’s never even drawn his gun,” Eric added, completely in disbelief.

Paddock, 64, had been staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino since Thursday. On Sunday night, police say that he fired several shots out of the window of his room, killing 58 people and injuring over 500 more. The shooter’s apparent targets were people attending a country festival across the street from the hotel. Jason Aldean had been performing at the time shots broke out and he was rushed off the stage. Aldean was not physically injured in the shooting.

“It makes no sense. He’s never hit anybody. He’s never… he had a couple of hand guns, I think…he had a safe with a couple of hand guns. He might have had one long rifle, but he didn’t have any automatic weapons, that I knew of at any time. It just makes no sense,” Eric Paddock said.

Police say that shots were reported just after 10 p.m. local time. Paddock fired off several rounds, police finding more than 10 rifles in his hotel room. Paddock was the only suspect, according to law enforcement. It is believed that he acted as a “lone wolf.” Police say that Paddock took his own life, but they have not said anything about finding a note of any kind. In addition, a motive is unclear.

“He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn’t a terror attack,” Eric Paddock told the Daily Mail, re-emphasizing his complete shock. “He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something,” Eric added.

The brother’s reaction is odd. He’s laughing and joking with the reporter? Yet, he’s been in recent contact by text with his now deceased brother? And he’s joking about his girlfriend being a “short person.” Something is very, very, very wrong here. Nothing adds up. The girlfriend sending tens of thousands of dollars to Phililpines. Her niece works in Dubai. The shooter used the girlfriend’s card and ID for hotel. Nobody sees the shooter bringing in tons of ammo or guns? Where’s the video surveillance inside Casino? Shooter worked for defense contractor? Where? When? Was he contacted and groomed for this purpose then? WHO are the couple who told concert goers they were all going to die? WHY were they escorted out? Usually people aren’t escorted out of concerts unless they’ve thrown some punches or made threats. These people who were killed were totally caught by surprise. Sitting ducks. Always follow the money There are many, many very wealthy people right now who are pissed off that Trump won. They’ve lost Clinton connection. The Clintons were the most diabolical compromised garbage that fed the evil scum of the earth whatever they wanted while they were in power. But now, no more with Trump so they’re getting very hungry. They want blood.

I do hope that they don’t botch the investigation though… I hope that they check the suspected shooter for gunshot residue because the shooter would be practically bathing in it.
His family says it’s really uncharacteristic of him (I know that’s what they always say).
There was a camera surveillance set up to warn of when the authorities arrived.
Why kill himself when the cops arrive? Why not continue the carnage on them?
I know this is major conspiracy bs but they said they found the shooter dead. Dead men can’t shoot guns but they can be framed for it with the real perpetrators exiting before the authorities arrived since they had the surveillance equipment and knew when they were arriving.
I don’t know it’s just a lot of shooting for one person.
I hate conspiracy theories so I just really hope they do a thorough investigation including the gunshot residue; if he’s doused in it, he was alive during the shooting and likely a lone wolf shooter.
It’s horrific no matter what but I hope they close all the holes on the conspiracy possibilities.
