Man who sold bullets to Vegas shooter charged

Douglas Haig right the man identified Tuesday as a

They said they found his fingerprints on unused bullets in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino hotel room from where Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd attending a country music festival.

"I had no contribution to what Paddock did", Mr Haig told reporters, adding that there was nothing unusual about the type or quantity of ammunition the shooter bought.

He also told "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that he sold more than 700 rounds of ammunition to Paddock.

The Las Vegas shooting has been deemed the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

He appeared this afternoon before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Michelle H. Burns and was released on a bond with conditions pending a status conference regarding scheduling of a preliminary hearing on February 15 in Phoenix.

If found guilty, he can fail jail-term up to five years.

"I was shocked that my name was the only one that was not redacted", he said.

"Very very thankful that he didn't use any of the ammunition that I sold him, but at the same time I wish he had because it would have given people more reason to scatter", said Haig.

A law enforcement official told the AP that investigators don't believe Haig was involved in the massacre or knew of the attack when he sold Paddock the ammunition.

That's something that Haig said shouldn't have even happened. "I had no way to see into his mind".




A lawyer for Haig was not immediately available to comment.

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

He 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 Mr Haig, the complaint said.

Haig stated that Paddock informed him he wanted to do a light show with or for his friends in the desert.

Investigators had also interviewed Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, as a person of interest, but later cleared her.

He appeared in court Friday and was released under the condition he not possess guns or ammunition. Haig claims to have received multiple death threats since his name was released.

Haig told investigators that when Paddock bought the ammunition at his home in suburban Phoenix, Paddock went to his vehicle to get gloves and put them on before taking the box from Haig.

In response to a question from CNN in January, the Clark County sheriff, Joe Lombardo, said federal authorities are investigating a person in the case.

Haig's attorney, Marc. J. Victor, said the transaction involving Paddock was legal and he does not expect his client to face charges. The product that I sold him had absolutely nothing to do with what he did. Haig said he was "horrified that this man would do something like that".
