The shooting in Las Vegas was the deadliest mass shooting in modern history yet no one has gone to jail for the crime since the main culprit killed himself before he could be taken into custody.
Throughout the investigation, there have been so-called 'persons of interest' such as Marilou Danley, the shooter's girlfriend who was questioned but never charged.
A second person of interest was mentioned several times but until Friday, it was unclear who that was. Fridays charges filed in federal court in Phoenix revealed the person of interest to be Douglas Haig of Arizona.
Authorities say Haig's fingerprints were found on armor-piercing bullets found inside the Las Vegas hotel room where the attack took place October 1.
Since Haig has no license to manufacture armor-piercing ammunition, which was used in the attack, he was charged in a federal complaint but records do not indicate if any of the ammunition was used in the attack.
Haig said in an interview earlier this week, "I couldn't detect anything wrong with this guy. He told me exactly what he wanted. I handed him a box with the ammunition in it, and he paid me and he left."
55-year-old Haig said he has sold ammunition for 25 years as a hobby and is an aerospace engineer by trade. He met the Las Vegas gunman at a gun show in Phoenix just weeks before the shooting that killed nearly 50 people and injured 500 more.
He said he gave a box of ammunition to Paddock with 720 rounds of tracer ammunition. Haig also said Paddock told him "he was going to go out to the desert to put on a light show, either with or for his friends. I can't remember whether he used the word 'with' or 'for.' But he said that he was going out at night to shoot it with friends."
Haig also said he has received unwanted attention since his name was released including death threats forcing him to close his ammunition business.
