An Arizona man has been sentenced to 13 months in prison after selling illegally manufactured ammunition to Stephen Paddock, the shooter who killed 59 people in Las Vegas in 2017, numerous sources reported.
Douglas Haig, 57, pleaded guilty in November to a federal charge of manufacturing ammunition without a license, according to KTNV. Haig admitted to selling illegal ammunition to Paddock, who opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 at the Route 91 Harvest music festival Oct. 1 and later shot himself in his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
Haig has been ordered to turn himself into a prison facility by Oct. 2.
Authorities discovered the ammunition with reloading tool marks packed into an Amazon shipping box that included Haig’s address at the time of the shooting, according to The Hill.
Haig operated his own ammunition business out of a workshop at his home in Arizona, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tony Lopez said the ammunition was “armor piercing,” which is illegal.
