A criminal complaint filed in federal court stated that unfired armor-piercing bullets found inside Paddock's hotel room had Haig's fingerprints on them.

The complaint filed Friday in federal court in Nevada says Haig didn't have a license to manufacture armor-piercing ammunition, which is required to manufacturer or sell such ammunition by USA law.

Haig's attorney, Marc J. Victor, told CNN he had no comment. He did not have the license required to make such bullets and thus charges were brought forward.

The documents don't say if any ammunition tied to Paddock was used in the attack.

Lombardo sought to dispel conspiracy theories linked to multiple gunmen or ties to Islamic State and took the unusual step of releasing his agency's preliminary investigative report.

Haig told the news program he sold Paddock "tracer ammunition" that leaves a streak of light when fired. At the time, He didn't have the quantity of ammunition Paddock was looking, which led to him coming to Haig's house to buy the additional rounds.

Told Haig, 'I had no contribution to what Paddock did. "I had no way to see into his mind".

Haig and Victor insisted that Haig's interaction with the gunman was extremely limited.

It said Mr Haig did not have a licence to manufacture armour-piercing ammunition. Haig, according to the complaint, did not have such a license. "Forensic examination also revealed that armor piercing ammunition recovered inside of the shooter's rooms had tool marks consistent with Haig's reloading equipment".

The complaint said Haig sold such bullets in more than 100 instances to customers across the United States, including Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming and SC.

Douglas Haig, 55, told reporters on Friday at a news conference that he has received death threats in the days since his name was accidentally released in police warrants made public by a Nevada judge on Tuesday.

According to CNN, the 55-year-old is due in court on February 15 for a preliminary hearing and faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Douglas Haig, an employee at an aerospace company in Arizona, is facing charges stemming from the investigation into the mass shooting in Las Vegas in October.

The sale was later completed at Haig's home in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa.

The complaint states that Haig spoke to Paddock on September 19 and provided him directions to his Mesa, Arizona, residence, where the sale was later completed.

One person of interest, whom police had named previously, was the killer's girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Haig's identity emerged by mistake after his name was not redacted in court documents.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. He stated Paddock asked for something to carry the ammo, so he provided him with a box which had his name and address on it.
