As readers know, Stephen was killed by police after they found him in his 32nd-floor hotel room after the shooting. The troubled killer opened fire during Jason Aldean's country concert, where he killed at least 50 and injured at least 200.

Witnesses said the deadly event lasted for almost two hours and is now known as the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Adding to reports that Stephen's attack was a "solo act' from a "lone wolf attacker," his brother Eric claimed he had no political or religious affiliation that may have led him to commit the horrible crime.
