However, among the unfired rounds found in Paddock's hotel room were two cartridges which forensic analysis determined were armor-piercing/incendiary ammo that had Haig's fingerprints on them, the complaint states.

The criminal charge involves another type of ammunition - armor-piercing bullets.

The DOJ also accused Haig of operating an internet business called "Specialized Military Ammunition" which sold "high explosive armor piercing incendiary ammunition, armor piercing incendiary ammunition, and armor piercing ammunition" in states like Nevada, Texas, Virginia, Wyoming, and SC. The documents show Haig does not have a license to manufacture armor-piercing bullets.

Douglas Haig is scheduled to hold a news conference Friday in Chandler to discuss his sale to Stephen Paddock.

He appeared this afternoon before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Michelle H. Burns and was released on a bond with conditions pending a status conference regarding scheduling of a preliminary hearing on February 15 in Phoenix. He could face a maximum $250,000 fine for the federal ammunition manufacturing charge and up to five years in prison.

"My first obligation and only obligation is to my client", he told KNXV.

According to the complaint, which was obtained by ABC News, Haig admitted to selling hundreds of rounds of tracer ammo to Paddock in September, which isn't illegal. "It makes me feel disgusting", he said at a news conference Friday morning.

He stressed that his sale made "no contribution" to the killings since Paddock didn't appear to have fired tracer rounds.

U.S. concerned over possibility of sarin gas used in Syria
Mattis told reporters the Syrian government had committed multiple attacks using chlorine gas. He added "they'd be ill-advised to go back to violating the chemical convention".

"I've had people pounding on my door, death threats", he said.

He told CNN that he learned about the shooting from law enforcement officials and said he felt "horror that this man would do something like that".

He said the 5.56mm rounds were in their original packaging.

'He said that he was going to go out and shoot it at night with friends, ' Haig said.

"I couldn't detect anything wrong with this guy", he said of Paddock.

"At no time did I see anything suspicious or odd or anything that would set off an alarm", he said.

Haig said he is cooperating with investigators.

He said he was 'horrified that this man would do something like that, ' and called the news 'probably one of the most awful things I've ever been told or heard of'. "Sickness. Horror that this man would do something like that".

Haig remembers his shock when federal investigators called him the day after the shooting.

'After that transaction, Doug had absolutely no further contact with Mr. Paddock'.

It was unclear from the CBS interview whether Haig was still a person of interest. The judge released the documents after CNN and other media outlets sued to obtain them.

The FBI didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

But since his name has been linked to the tragedy, Haig said it's been a nightmare.

"He pulled up very well dressed, very well groomed, very polite, respectful", Haig said when describing his interactions with Paddock.

"I had no way to see into his mind", he said.

On Friday morning, before his arrest, Haig answered a reporter's question about whether he believed he was that person.

"I was shocked that my name was the only one that was not redacted", he said.
