Man who sold bullets to Vegas shooter charged

"My first obligation and only obligation is to my client", he told KNXV. The box from this ammo with Haig's information on it was found in the room Paddock used to commit his act of terror.

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

The lawyer added 'none of his ammunition was used' in the shooting.

He did not describe the ammunition as armor-piercing.

According to The New York Times, Haig's fingerprints were found on unused ammunition found inside Paddock's Vegas hotel room.

That's something that Haig said shouldn't have even happened. "It makes me feel terrible", he said at a news conference Friday morning.

In addition to the 59 people killed by Paddock in the Las Vegas massacre, almost 500 people were injured, some by gunfire, others trampled or otherwise hurt while running for cover. The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

He stated Paddock wanted to more tracer rounds than he had on hand at the show, so Paddock called him a few days later to set up a sell of 720 tracer rounds at Haig's house.

He said the 5.56mm rounds were in their original packaging. He went on to say, "He pulled up very well dressed, very well groomed, very polite, respectful". "At no time did I see anything suspicious or odd or any kind of a tell". Investigators were in touch with Haig shortly after the shooting.

But his attorney said none of Haig's ammo was used in the massacre.

An Arizona man who sold ammunition to the gunman in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history says his one-time customer didn't raise suspicions that he planned to commit any crimes. "Sickness. Horror that this man would do something like that".

The name and address on the box is what led investigators to Mr. Haig.

Danley was Paddock's girlfriend and initially was named as a person of interest in the investigation. The judge released the documents after CNN and other media outlets sued to obtain them. The documents didn't explain why he was a person of interest.

A lawyer for Haig was not immediately available to comment.

Haig, who has closed his ammunition business, said he has received unwanted media attention and death threats since his name was released. "One woman screaming through my door that I should be killed and I should die".

Haig said he was at a loss to explain why Paddock did it.

"I had no contribution to what Paddock did", AP reported Haig told reporters before his arrest. "I had no way to see into his mind". On Jan. 19, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he did not expect her to face charges.

Then came the federal charges. Haig's identity emerged by mistake after his name was not redacted in court documents.
