Bruce Paddock threatened death upon employees at a Los Angeles nursing home just one month after his older brother, Stephen, shot and killed 58 people in Las Vegas.
Bruce went on the furious rampage sometime Monday after breaking into the Four Seasons Healthcare & Wellness Center where he was living prior to his arrest on charges of child pornography last week.
He reportedly told an employee during the confrontation: ‘Get the f*** out of my way or I’m going to kill you,’ according to a TMZ report.
‘Don’t f*** with me and tell your nurses not to f*** with me because I’m the one that hurts people,’ he also told another administrator in a separate event.

Bruce has since been prohibited from the facility and ordered to keep 100 yards distance from the property.
A friend to Bruce told the Daily Mail the younger Paddock woke up in the middle of the night and bragged to him: ‘Hey man, that shooting in Las Vegas was my brother.’
The source confirmed Bruce had been living at the Four Seasons nursing facility for a few months prior to his arrest last week – which came as a ‘big shock’ to those who knew him.
‘There was about four of us who were the closest to him. It was kind of sad,’ the friend added. ‘The child pornography, I don’t know what’s going on, that’s a weird one.’

Stephen killed 58 and wounded more than 500 before he shot and killed himself on October 1 in Las Vegas, Nevada
Another resident at the nursing home revealed he became worried for his own safety after his troubled friend’s brother, Stephen, opened fire on crowds at a country festival – in the event deemed the deadliest massacre in modern day history.
Stephen killed 58 and wounded more than 500 before he shot and killed himself the night of October 1.
Employees at the Four Season’s nursing home watched Bruce ‘like a hawk’ as he displayed erratic behavior during his three month-long stay.
The resident revealed Bruce often wandered onto the premises of the facility ‘naked’.
Administrators were also aware of the child porn allegations against him and monitored his belongings and mail.
‘So whenever boxes came in they went through his boxes and stuff to see if anything suspicious, like cameras, came in,’ the source said.
Two days prior to his October 25 arrest, Bruce’s behavior had changed drastically, and he became withdrawn.
‘He quit playing with me and having fun in the last two days,’ the source told the Daily Mail.
‘I don’t know what’s going on because he didn’t tell me, I wish I did,’ he said.
‘He kept it to himself … But, if he’d known they were going to arrest him, he’d have been gone.’
