Seller of ammo to Vegas shooter didn't know plan

Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino– Las Vegas Hotels | Hotels.Vegas

Lombardo also stressed that, "there is only one person responsible and that was Stephen Paddock".

Photo Investigators outside the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in October.

Douglas Haig, 55, said he had met Paddock at gun shows and sold him tracer ammunition, which are bullets or cannon-caliber projectiles that burn brightly when they are fired and as a result help a shooter aim.

"I have some very strong feelings". "I didn't even know who this guy was".

Haig says he sold Paddock tracer ammunition, which makes rounds look nearly like fireworks.

Paddock had 1,000 tracer rounds in his weapons cache, officials said in the days after the shooting, but later indicated he didn't use them in the melee.

The papers show that investigators found 23 rifles and a handgun in Paddock's 32nd-floor hotel suite and an adjoining room.

Neither the police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation nor the U.S. attorney's office have commented on whether Haig is still considered a person of interest in the investigation, however Las Vegas sheriff Joe Lombardo said earlier this month that investigators believed Paddock had acted alone.

It's unclear whether it's the same person.

Douglas Haig's name appeared Tuesday after a Nevada court judge released almost 300 documents related to the case.

The identity of the man, Douglas Haig, has not been previously reported.

Another "person of interest" authorities wanted to talk to after the Las Vegas mass shooting was identified Tuesday when his name was accidentally left unredacted in case records released to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Review-Journal and other publications had sued the LVPD to unseal search warrants in the shooting investigation.

Las Vegas police officials told CNN on Tuesday the department can not comment on Haig or any names.

"I ordered them redacted and thought they were redacted not only to protect the investigation but because of concerns about possible danger to this individual", Cadish said, according to the Times.

But Haig, from Arizona, has emerged in court documents as a "person of interest" in the case.

Neither she nor Haig is charged with a crime. At his home in Mesa, Az.

Haig said he felt "horrible" when he realised what his customer had done and he shut his business down within weeks of the shooting. "The young man pointed at him 20 feet away, and I said, 'well, when he wants to, he'll come over.' Well, he never did come over", Haig said.

He reiterated that selling tracer ammunition in the state of Arizona is legal. He declined to provide additional details, saying he will answer questions at a news conference Friday with his attorney. Police in Mesa, where Haig lives, directed inquiries to the BATFE.

Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest music festival from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on October 1, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800 others. The mention of Haig's name may serve to fuel such speculation.

Records showed Haig owns Specialized Military Ammunition LLC. "Check back to see if/when we are up and running again".

It says the company started in 1991 as a small business to support the U.S. Special Operations Command.

"They asked me a bunch of questions", Haig told the magazine in an interview that wasn't published until Tuesday.

He told Newsweek in October that agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives came to speak with him not long after the shooting. Paddock's physician described him as "odd" in behavior with "little emotion" shown, according to the report.

"I was jumping out of my skin at first". They were following up on a lead, and obviously it went nowhere. An FBI spokeswoman told that outlet she could not immediately comment Tuesday.
