A man who sold hundreds of bullets to gunmen responsible for the shooting of 58 people from a Las Vegas hotel window has been charged Friday with conspiring to make and sell bullets capable of penetrating unlicensed steel. The charges threaten a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $ 250,000 fine.
Douglas Haig of Mesa, Arizona, the first person to be charged with the October massacre, the most deadly firing of deaths in modern American history.
was released on bail for an initial court hearing in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 15.
Police say they found Haig's fingerprints on bullets in Las Vegas's shooting room man Stephen Paddock.
Paddock fired on a country music show from his hotel room on the 32nd floor for almost 11 minutes, and he eventually committed suicide when the police came to his place. The room was full of firearms and the car was loaded with explosives. Investigators believe Paddock plans to escape after the massacre. [gp]
