Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock’s younger brother, who was arrested on child porn charges, planted hidden cameras around an auto repair shop where he squatted, according to a report.

The sicko had squatted in the attic of the Sun Valley, Calif., garage since 2014 but was eventually evicted after becoming “violent and aggressive” with staff and customers, the paper reported.

Hector Cruz, the shop’s owner, gave cops the computer, but Paddock disappeared and police had been hunting for him until tracking him down after his brother unleashed his massacre.

Mass Murderer Stephen Paddock Brother Off the Rails In Bizarre Interview

The brother of mass murderer Stephen Paddock lost it Tuesday during a bizarre, rambling interview.

Eric Paddock spoke with CBS News and broke down, unable to talk for a time, before his thoughts about his brother meandered.  

He says his family is torn apart over the deeds of his brother, and this isn’t the Stephen they knew.

Eric says his brother transferred $100k to the Philippines for legit reasons … to care for his girlfriend.  Authorities say she’s still a person of interest, but Eric thinks his brother manipulated her to leave the country so she wasn’t around when he fired into the Vegas crowd.

Eric also says his brother was rich and generous with his money, sometimes spending thousands of dollars on sushi for friends and relatives. 

He then went into a rant about his mom. It’s all over the place.

Mass shooting at Brighton Park memorial claims lives of brother and sister

Adriana Williams and her brother Michael stopped at a makeshift memorial on Sunday afternoon for a friend gunned down hours earlier on a street in Chicago’s Brighton Park neighborhood.

On Monday, a new memorial went up — this one for the two Williams siblings after they were killed and eight others wounded when two gunmen armed with rifles stepped from an alley and opened fire at mourners at the friend’s memorial.

The group had been celebrating the life of 26-year-old Daniel Cordova, who was shot and killed about 13 hours earlier, when the shots rang out.

“They were just coming to pay their respects,” said Willie Glover Jr., an older brother of Adriana, 27, and Michael, 24. “You expect people to respect that.”

Chicago police officers — mistaken for rival gang members — were shot and wounded. Of particular concern to police

Gary Lee Sampson’s brother says he’d be ‘heartbroken’ over execution

The older brother of spree killer Gary Lee Sampson told federal jurors he will be “heartbroken” if they sentence his sibling to be executed.

“I’d be seriously heartbroken over that,” Wayne Sampson testified yesterday. “He’s my brother. He’s my only brother. I love him.”

The long-haul trucker, taking a U.S. District Court witness stand at his brother’s capital sentencing retrial, spoke with neither bitterness nor pity about the savage sibling his late parents Elbert “Herc” and Charlotte Sampson — an Abington firefighter and a stay-at-home mother of three — eventually “gave up on.”

Elbert Sampson died in 2002, nearly a year to the day after Gary Lee Sampson, 57, carjacked and fatally stabbed a Taunton retiree and a Kingston teen after each picked him up while he was hitchhiking.

He then choked to death a man who showed up to mow the lawn at a Lake Winnipesaukee cottage he had broken into while on
