Fifty-nine-year-old Bruce Paddock's computer contained 600 child porn images, which he left behind at a vehicle fix shop he squatted at three years ago, prosecutors say.

Bruce Paddock's arrest was confirmed by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly.

Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds more were wounded in the shooting October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

"They were just asking about our childhood, what schools we went to, who his friends were", Paddock said.

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 police statement said Bruce Paddock came under investigation after evidence was discovered inside a business in the Sun Valley area of the city where he had been a squatter.

Bruce Paddock has previous convictions for vandalism, criminal threats and theft, NBC reported, citing court records.

It wasn't immediately known if Bruce Paddock has an attorney. Refresh this page for updates.
