Documents: Second person of interest was identified in Vegas massacre

Vegas shooting

Vegas shooting

Initially, Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was named "person of interest" in the investigation. He says Paddock told him he was going to put on a "light show" with the tracer ammunition he purchased.

Haig's possible connections to Paddock or Danley are not outlined in the records.

Records showed Haig owns Specialized Military Ammunition LLC.

Doug Haig, who lives in Mesa, Arizona, says he sold ammunition to Stephen Paddock.

Douglas Haig told Newsweek he was questioned by agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after the October 1 shooting. "The young man pointed at him 20 feet away, and I said, 'well, when he wants to, he'll come over.' Well, he never did come over", Haig said.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo was quoted by the Las Vegas Review Journal as saying that he could not comment on a federal case, "If you've got it, publish it".

The man who admits to selling ammunition to the 1 October shooter talked extensively only to CBS News.

Paddock opened fire on an outdoor country music concert below the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on October 1, the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

Chris Wray put pressure on McCabe to quit
Trump has been publicly pressuring McCabe for months and has claimed that McCabe has an anti-Trump bias. Trump also reportedly berated McCabe over the political donations his wife received from McAuliffe.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal identified the person of interest as Douglas Haig.

On Tuesday, a Nevada court unsealed hundreds of pages of search warrants, including an affidavit filed less than a week after the shooting that identifies the gunman's longtime girlfriend as a person of interest. The website describes itself as "your source for premium, MILSPEC, tracer and incendiary ammunition in popular military calibers", including ammunition that "ignites diesel and kerosene".

The newspaper published the name online. The Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing police documents, identifies that person as Douglas Haig. She is not likely to face any charges, according to authorities involved with the investigation.

Investigators are yet to explain why they believe the 64-year-old retired accountant carried out the massacre, which was the worst in United States history.

Internet history found on a computer in his suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel showed his searches only became focused on Las Vegas within weeks of the attack, according to a police report.

Lombardo also said he expected a final report on the shooting to be released before the end of 2018. County attorneys did not respond immediately to questions about whether Fedenberg could appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court. At a news conference January 20, authorities said that although shooter Stephen Paddock acted alone, the FBI was investigating a second person who could yet face charges not directly connected to the shooting itself.

Days after the shooting, Haig told Newsweek that agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives interviewed him but said he had nothing to do with the crime. He searched "do police use explosives" on September 15, 2017, as well as "SWAT Las Vegas".
