Suspect's brother: No religious or political affiliation; "he just hung out"

Eric Paddock, brother of Las Vegas shooting suspect Stephen Paddock, says he never had any indication his brother would turn violent. Eric says Stephen liked to "hang out," gambled a bit, and had never shown any religious or political inclination.

Eric repeatedly asked reporters to find out how Stephen, who he says until recently had only owned a few handguns and one rifle, was able to acquire automatic weapons.
