Las Vegas Shooting Documents Include Second Person Of Interest

Haig told Newsweek he hadn't sold ammunition reloading components "for a long time" and said he had asked the company hosting the Specialized Military Ammunition website to take it down.

In October a year ago, a law enforcement official told the AP that Paddock had bought around 1,000 rounds of ammunition from an anonymous seller. A LinkedIn account that appears to belong to him says he also works at a company called Specialized Military Ammunition.

AP writer Jacques Billeaud contributed to this report.

Haig told Newsweek he was questioned by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after the October 1 shooting.

In addition to the autopsy draft for shooter Stephen Paddock, records for all 58 victims will be released.

Newsweek reported Tuesday the magazine had interviewed Haig in October but didn't publish his comments then.

"He said he was going to go put on a light show and I can't remember whether he said "for" or "with" his friends, but that's what he did say".

Attempts to reach Haig at his Arizona home and by phone were unsuccessful.

But Sgt. Jerry MacDonald, who issued the warrant request via telephone as the investigation was just beginning to unfold, told the Las Vegas Review Journal that he made that statement in error.

Cadish later ordered the full document not be published without redactions, but she acknowledged she couldn't order the newspaper to retract the name.

"I'm the guy that sold ammunition to Stephen Paddock", Haig told the TV station outside his home in Mesa. She was detained and later released by the Las Vegas Police Department after they carried out an investigation into her alleged involvement in the shooting.

Authorities say she's not likely to face criminal charges. It was not immediately clear if that person was Haig. Federal Bureau of Investigation and US attorney's office spokeswomen in Las Vegas declined to comment.

In the early days of the investigation into the Las Vegas mass shooting, two people were named as persons of interest in the case, according to newly released police search warrants. The court released almost 200 pages of records after the hearing.

However, Paddock and Haig never spoke and the deal didn't happen.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said he could not comment on a federal case, but he did not object to the newspaper revealing Haig's name.

Fudenberg maintains the records are confidential, and restricts release to families and to police investigating deaths.

Court officials are redacting the warrant records in preparation for release later Tuesday.

The order followed a closed-door hearing Friday with lawyers representing Las Vegas police.

Redacted autopsy reports of the 58 victims slain in the October 1 mass shooting will be released "as soon as possible" following a Tuesday court order, according to the Clark County coroner's office. County attorneys did not respond immediately to questions about whether Fedenberg could appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court. There were ongoing questions the media wanted to answer for the people.
