Hearing Set For Arizona Man Accused Of Selling Ammo To Las Vegas Shooter

A status hearing has been set for a Mesa man accused of selling armor-piercing ammunition to the gunman in the deadly 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas.

The hearing for Douglas Haig is set for Aug. 28.

It was supposed to take place last week, but was rescheduled at the request of his attorney. The hearing has been postponed six times.

Prosecutors charged Haig with conspiring to make and sell armor-piercing ammunition.  Authorities say Haig’s fingerprints were found on unfired ammo found in Stephen Paddock’s Las Vegas hotel room.

Paddock unleashed a torrent of bullets from that room Oct. 1, 2017, killing dozens and injuring hundreds.

Associated Press contributed to this report.
