Haig said investigators had contacted him earlier in connection with the case, reported Fox News.

Speaking at his suburban home in Mesa, Haig said he planned to hold a news conference later this week to answer questions about his name surfacing in the investigation. According to reports, Paddock killed himself at the scene.

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.

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

The records also included another person of interest, Mr. Haig, whose name the judge ordered redacted. Police have repeatedly said that officers found Paddock dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound upon entering his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay on the night of October 1. I still don't know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that I and my crew are safe. "I handed him a box with the ammunition in it, and he paid me and he left".

"He said he was going to go put on a light show and I can't remember whether he said "for" or "with" his friends, but that's what he did say".

Haig told CBS News he hardly spoke to Paddock, and couldn't detect anything wrong.


Danley was Paddock's girlfriend and initially was named as a person of interest in the investigation.

Federal documents connected to the investigation, including hundreds of pages of federal court records and search warrant affidavits, were unsealed earlier this month. Haig sold tracer ammunition to Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people and wounded hundreds on October 1, 2017.

About 22,000 people were attending the music festival when Paddock began shooting indiscriminately at them from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

A Las Vegas judge, at the urging of a coalition of news media organizations and over the objection of police, today ordered the release of sealed search warrant materials connected to the investigation of the largest mass shooting in modern US history.
