Ammo dealer wasn't involved in Las Vegas attack

Douglas Haig right the man identified Tuesday as a

The government has charged a Mesa man who sold ammunition to the man who carried out the Las Vegas massacre with conspiracy to manufacture and sell armor-piercing bullets without a license.

Haig met with Paddock multiple times, according to the criminal file against him, and in September of 2017, Paddock met with Haig at his home to purchase armor-piercing ammunition.

Identified as Douglas Haig, local police said that his fingerprints were found on some of the unused bullets at the hotel room from where Paddock shot dead at least 58 people last October.

The news of the charges comes just hours after Haig and his attorney gave a press conference on Friday morning, when both insisted that Haig had absolutely no connection to the shooting and that none of the ammunition he sold Paddock was found in the hotel room.

Victor told ABC News Wednesday that Haig only sold tracer rounds to Paddock.

Douglas Haig, 55, allegedly sold ammo to Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people by firing upon a concert from his hotel window on October 1, 2017.

Haig told investigators that when Paddock bought the ammunition at his home in suburban Phoenix, Paddock went to his auto to get gloves and put them on before taking the box from Haig. Haig advertised armor-piercing incendiary ammunition on his website, which now says the business is "closed indefinitely".

Las Vegas police officials told CNN the department couldn't comment on Haig or any names, and referred questions to federal authorities.

"The reason he opts to speak to the press today is basically to protect his reputation", Haig's lawyer said.

Haig then put the ammunition in the box later found in Paddock's room. His attorney said the ammunition had not been altered at all.

The only other person of interest named in search warrants was Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Haig's identity emerged by mistake after his name was not redacted in court documents.

Before the sale, Paddock told him "that he was going to go out to the desert and put on a light show" with the ammunition - that he was "going to go out and shoot it at night with friends". And nothing could be further from the truth, ' Haig said.

The complaint said Haig sold such bullets in more than 100 instances to customers across the United States, including Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming and SC.

Haig works for Honeywell Aerospace, an aircraft engines and avionics manufacturer in Phoenix, a company spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

Records show Haig also owns Specialized Military Ammunition LLC.

Haig remarked Paddock at the time being well dressed, polite, and that the "customer" hadn't raised any suspicions.

"I had no way to see into his mind", he said.
