Hearing postponed for man accused of providing ammo to Vegas shooter
PHOENIX — The court date for an Arizona man accused of providing armor-piercing ammunition to the gunman in last year’s mass shooting in Las Vegas has again been postponed.
The hearing for 55-year-old Douglas Haig was scheduled for Monday but has since been moved to May 21.
Haig was charged with conspiring to make and sell armor-piercing ammunition in February.
Authorities say unfired armor-piercing cartridges found inside the Las Vegas hotel room where Stephen Paddock launched the Oct. 1 attack had Haig’s fingerprints.
Haig maintains he legally sold tracer ammunition — which illuminates the path of bullets — to Paddock in the weeks before the shooting that killed 58 people and ended with Paddock killing himself.
The charge centered on armor-piercing cartridges.
Haig hasn’t yet entered a plea.
