Arizona man who sold armor-piercing ammunition to Las Vegas gunman charged

An Arizona man who sold ammunition to the gunman who carried out the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history was charged Friday with manufacturing armor-piercing bullets without a license. The documents show Haig does not have a license to manufacture armor-piercing bullets.

According to charging documents obtained by Las Vegas Now, Haig's fingerprints were found on armor-piercing bullets in Paddock's hotel room, where the gunman shot and killed 58 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1.

Business records showed that Haig sold armor piercing ammunition throughout the US, including Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming, and SC.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press in October that Paddock bought 1,000 rounds of tracer ammunition from a private seller he met at a Phoenix gun show three weeks before the shooting. "At no time did I see anything suspicious or odd or any kind of a tell".

Douglas Haig was publicly named as a "person of interest" by mistake Tuesday when his name wasn't redacted in court documents released almost four months after the october 1 shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people.

Haig was not aware of what happened in Las Vegas until agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the BATF told him 11 hours after the events unfolded.

While Haig does not have a license to manufacture armor-piercing ammunition, he had a website where he sold specialized military ammunition, including armor piercing ammo, according to the criminal complaint.

This evening, Haig, in shackles, appeared in federal court with Victor by his side on the single charge listed in the complaint, according to local ABC affiliate KNXV.

It wasn't immediately clear if the request for the armor piercing ammo struck Haig as unusual or over bearing in quantity?

"Revulsion, sickness, horrified that this man would do something like that", he said.

Paddock got lost on the way to Haig's home, so he called him a third time, then eventually pulled up to the Arizona man's address. His attorney said the ammunition had not been altered at all. Haig claims to have received multiple death threats since his name was released.

The only other person of interest named in search warrants was Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley.

"He said that he was going to go out to the desert and put a light show either with or for his friends", said Haig.

Paddock arrived at Haig's home "very well-dressed, very well-groomed, very polite, very respectful", Haig said. That was their only transaction, he said. "I'm a vendor, merchant, whose name was released".

He doesn't sell it anymore, and he's not sure if he ever will again.

"It's been not a lot of fun, quite frankly", Haig said.
