FBI Arrested Father Of Las Vegas Shooter In Oregon In 1978

FBI Arrested Father Of Las Vegas Shooter In Oregon In 1978

Eric Paddock, Stephen Paddock's brother, told CNN that their father died a few years ago.

Patrick Benjamin Paddock, also known as "Chromedome" and "Old Baldy", was arrested in 1960 after robbing the Valley National Bank in Phoenix, Arizona. Paddock got away with over $4,600 from the robbery.

The elder Paddock's final arrest (for bank robbery) was in Las Vegas, though it is unclear whether this figured into the killer's thinking.

Benjamin drove his auto at Federal Bureau of Investigation agents pursing him before escaping, according to newspaper reports from the time.

During a court appearance, Paddock testified that he would have fled the jail "if they had been lax enough to let me go".

How did you find FoxNews, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock robbed several banks, escaped from prison in Texas, and after serving his sentence still tried to start a normal life as a member Manager. In fact, Stephen Paddock's dad has been on the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list.

Last night in Las Vegas, USA, American citizen, Stephen Paddock, held an armed assault on road across participants in a concert, at least 58 people were injured in attack, while more than 500 people were wounded.

In Oregon, Mr. Paddock played poker with friends in Eugene and opened the state's first permanent bingo parlor in the late 1970s, the Bingo Center in downtown Springfield. We did not know him.

The bureau's poster on Benjamin said he had committed armed robberies, had "suicidal tendencies", and "should be considered armed and very risky".

"He was wanted for being an Escaped Federal Prisoner after he escaped from a federal corrections institution in La Tuna, Texas, on, 1968". It is perhaps the only significant clue that anything was unusual about Stephen Paddock, a man who otherwise has been largely described as normal and never likely to commit such a horrifying atrocity.

Paddock, 64, began shooting from the window of his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino just after 10 p.m. local time Sunday evening, police said.
