Mesa ammo dealer wants death threats to stop and his reputation cleared

Douglas Haig right the man who was identified this week as a “person of interest” in the Las Vegas shooting investigation speaks at a press conference with his attorney Marc J. Victor cen

The complaint filed Friday in federal court in Nevada says Haig didn't have a license to manufacture armor-piercing ammunition, which is required to manufacturer or sell such ammunition by USA law.

Haig made an initial court appearance before a federal magistrate in Phoenix and was freed under conditional release pending a February 15 status conference set for the case, prosecutors said.

If convicted, he faces the statutory maximum penalty of five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.

A criminal complaint filed Friday morning is sealed in Nevada, but it appears in Arizona court records. "He told me exactly what he wanted".

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

Federal officials declined or didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

A complaint says unfired armor-piercing bullets found inside the Las Vegas hotel room where the attack was launched on October 1 contained the fingerprints of ammunition dealer Douglas Haig of Arizona.

"Reloaded ammunition refers to ammunition that is manufactured from component parts, including previously fired cartridge cases", according to the statement.

Federal agents identified Haig through a box with his name on it found in the gunman's hotel room.

This is a breaking news story.

The Arizona man, who sold ammunition to the 1 October shooter, is now facing charges of manufacturing armor-piercing bullets.

"You would have seen red streaks coming from the window and there weren't red steaks coming from the window", he said.

The gun dealer's denials follow the 25 year part time dealer being charged on Friday, four months after Paddock went on a mass shooting spree in early October which led to 58 deaths at a summer country music concert.

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

He said people have pounded on his door to tell him that he deserves to die. "He paid me, put it in his auto and drove away", Haig said.

"At no time did I see anything suspicious or odd or any kind of a tell", Haig told reporters.

Fifty-eight people were killed and hundreds injured in the shooting.

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

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

Danley was Paddock's girlfriend and initially was named as a person of interest in the investigation. Investigators were in touch with Haig shortly after the shooting.

"Revulsion, sickness, horrified that this man would do something like that", Haig said. In it he explained how he first met Paddock at a Phoenix gun show and calmly recounted having three separate phone conversations with Paddock whom he described as "very well dressed, very well groomed, very polite, very respectful". An engineer with Honeywell, Haig said he sold ammunition as a "hobby".
