Arizona man who sold armor-piercing ammunition to Las Vegas gunman charged

Police tape blocks an entrance at the Mandalay Bay Resortv Caisno

An Arizona man who sold ammunition to the gunman in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history says there was no way he could see into the man's mind.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department document, prepared in October, "Until the investigation can rule otherwise, Marilou Danley and Douglas Haig have become persons of interest who may have conspired with Stephen Paddock to commit Murder with a Deadly Weapon".

Haig, 55, said his life has been turned upside down since his name was released.

Victor said he hasn't been told whether his client is still being considered a person of interest, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't return a request for comment.

"This was a routine transaction to purchase a routine ammunition,"Victor said at a news conference Friday". "People need to do their research and think rather than just react viscerally".

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.

"It's been not a lot of fun, quite frankly", Haig said.

Alexa can now send SMS messages via voice commands
United States users can even bolt a full home service to Alexa, and it surely won't be long before the same is true here. So, if you have an Echo smart speaker and an Android smartphone , you can ask Alexa for send a SMS message.

Bonkers conspiracy site Intellihub posted an article this week that pointed to Haig's background in the aerospace industry as a sign of USA government involvement in the massacre.

"Revulsion, sickness, horrified that this man would do something like that", Haig said.

"Let's not forget that it is a fact that helicopters were lurking behind the Mandalay Bay during the attack which were not shown on the radar", author Shepard Ambellas writes. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department referred all questions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After initially being unclear about whether he'd met Paddock, Haig told investigators that he'd met the shooter at a Phoenix gun show in early September.

"I have to trust them", Haig said of those customers.

A law enforcement official told The Associated Press in October that Paddock bought 1,000 rounds of tracer ammunition from a private seller he met at a Phoenix gun show three weeks before the shooting. Had Paddock fired these rounds during the nighttime massacre at the concert, they would have been visible.

But Haig told a news conference at the office of his attorney on Friday that none of the surplus military ammunition he sold Paddock in September was ever fired during the killing spree, which ranks as the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

At a news conference Friday at his lawyer's office, Haig also said Paddock demonstrated no unusual behavior when he came to Haig's home in Mesa to purchase approximately 720 rounds of tracer ammunition. Told him what he owed me. "I couldn't detect anything wrong with this guy", Haig said.

Turkey presses ahead with Afrin offensive
Manning said he did not know if the USA has agreed to stop arming and training its Syrian allies, another request by Turkey. So far, Turkey has reported the killing of 712 militants, and the destruction of more than 400 militants facilities.

Haig said he put Paddock's order in a box. He paid me, put it in his vehicle and drove away.

Haig told the AP on Tuesday that he sold unspecified ammunition to Paddock.

Neither Haig nor his lawyer could be reached for immediate comment after news of the criminal case broke Friday afternoon.

"I feel bad about what's happened", said Haig.

Nevertheless, it's hard to believe that Haig's denials will dissuade the conspiracy-mongers.

It's unknown whether the ammunition Haig sold to Paddock was used in the attack. Haig was at work, so the Arizona man asked Paddock to call him later.

"I don't know", he said.
