Stephen Paddock, who allegedly opened fire on a Las Vegas country music crowd in a deadly shooting, spent part of his childhood in Tucson.

According to a Tucson Citizen archival article unearthed by USA Today, Paddock's father, Benjamin Hoskins Paddock lived with his family before he was arrested for a bank robbery in 1960.

The elder Paddock eventually made the FBI top 10 list.

Stephen Paddock, 64, is believed to have killed himself following the Las Vegas massacre.
